Celebrating over a Decade of Empowering African Female Entrepreneurs: The Journey of Women Mean Business

In 2013, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, a revolutionary movement was born. Women Mean Business (WMB) emerged as a beacon of empowerment and collaboration for African female entrepreneurs, igniting a spark that would transform the entrepreneurship landscape in Sierra Leone and its diaspora. What began as a humble gathering during Women’s Month has blossomed into a dynamic community, driving tangible change and fostering growth in the African private sector.

Last year, we celebrated a decade of empowerment, and we want to extend our deepest gratitude to all those who have supported our journey thus far. To our founding partners, Ajara Marie Bomah and Roselynn Onah, our sponsors, strategic partners, and every woman who has walked alongside us, thank you for your unwavering commitment to our cause and business. Your dedication has been instrumental in shaping the success of Women Mean Business and empowering countless women to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.

WMB has evolved from a simple gathering to a comprehensive platform offering essential support and resources to women entrepreneurs. We have provided business development, strategic communications, project management, market entry, and marketing services to entrepreneurs, institutions, non-profits, and corporate entities across Africa. Together, we have built businesses, reached new markets, and developed digital footprints, contributing to the growth and prosperity of the African private sector, and most especially businesses owned by African women.

As we reflect on our journey of growth and success, we recognize the need to adapt and innovate in response to the changing needs of women entrepreneurs. We are thrilled to announce the launch of the WMB Community for Women in Business. This digital networking space will serve as a hub for women entrepreneurs to connect, exchange ideas, seek advice, and share resources, transcending geographical boundaries, and fostering collaboration across Africa and the Diaspora.

Through the WMB Community, we will continue to advocate for policies that support women in business and raise awareness about the challenges and opportunities they face. We will amplify the voices of women entrepreneurs through digital advocacy campaigns, shining a spotlight on their accomplishments and advocating for gender-inclusive policies.

The WMB Community will provide guidance and support to women entrepreneurs interested in leveraging digital technologies to expand their businesses. Whether through e-commerce platforms, online marketplaces, or digital marketing strategies, we are committed to helping women access new markets and achieve sustainable growth.

As we embark on this new chapter, we invite women in business that are looking to join us in shaping the future of entrepreneurship in Sierra Leone, Africa, and the Diaspora. Together, we can build a more inclusive, equitable, and prosperous business ecosystem where every woman has the opportunity to succeed.

Join us as we celebrate a decade of empowerment and nurturing the next generation of Women who Mean Business.
