WestlionCo Women
Entrepreneurship Program

A women-focused initiative that aims at driving change by empowering female-led businesses and female entrepreneurs with functional knowledge, entrepreneurial skills, and resources to surmount startup challenges in order to run, grow and sustain lucrative businesses.

Our Firm Belief:

Female Entrepreneurship is the future of the African Continent

Succinctly delineated by Ms. Thokozile Ruzvidzo – “Women’s entrepreneurship is recognized as the biggest yet underutilized opportunity for sustained economic growth and social development” – (Former Director – United Nations Economic Commission for Africa).

Roland Berger’s Women in Africa Entrepreneurship Study (2018) noted that female entrepreneurs contributed between US$250 billion and US$300 billion to African economic growth in 2016, equivalent to about 13% of the continent’s GDP.

According to McKinsey, the female economy is the world’s largest emerging market with the potential to add US$12 trillion to global GDP by 2025.

We are committed to assisting both necessity-driven and opportunity-motivated female entrepreneurs in Africa and raising new ones along the line.
