Research indicates that entrepreneurship is key to eradicating poverty and underdevelopment and for generating value. It is also vital for promoting socioeconomic cohesion, inclusion and integration. Female Afrikan entrepreneurs can also contribute in more significant ways to nation-building through business leadership, both in the diaspora and on the continent.
Sadly, Afrikan women, in spite of their ingenuity, resilience, astuteness and resourcefulness, are yet to find their collective voices in business and entrepreneurial leadership both within and outside the continent. Research indicates that even in developed nations, they face a plethora of barriers, challenges and limitations.
