Webinar: Women entrepreneurs in African agribusiness

Nelleke van der Vleuten
By on August 5, 2016

What does it mean to be a female entrepreneur in Africa, among male peers and the community? Why is it important to support women’s entrepreneurship? What is the best way to do so? And what inspiration can women entrepreneurs offer for women leadership and inclusive business in the African agro-food sector?

These questions and many more will be addressed in two interactive activities organized by 2SCALE in 2016. We do this in close collaboration with three inspiring women entrepreneurs who partner with 2SCALE: Ruth Kinoti (Shalem Investments, Kenya), Ruth Okiror (Acila Enterprises, Uganda) and Oluyemisi Iranloye (Psaltry International, Nigeria).

Webinar: Tuesday August 23rd, 2016 | 12.00 – 13.15 pm (Nigeria time) / 14.00 – 15.15 pm (East Africa time).
Bootcamp module: During the week of 14 – 18 November 2016.
