Lionesses of Africa once again partnered with Standard Bank in Maputo and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to host over 140 leading women entrepreneurs for a morning of inspiration, information sharing and great networking. The morning’s agenda commenced with breakfast and networking, with women entrepreneurs getting the opportunity to meet one another, make important connections, and open up new business opportunities. The event programme then formally got under way with opening remarks from the three co-hosts for the morning.
Presenting an overview of the work of Lionesses of Africa to empower and support 1 million women entrepreneurs across the African continent was founder and ceo, Melanie Hawken. She shared details of some of the major initiatives currently being rolled out by Lionesses of Africa and also plans for the remainder of the year ahead. Speaking at the event, Melanie Hawken commented: 

“It’s great to be back in Maputo, one of our favourite Lioness Lean In destinations on the African continent, and to have the opportunity to connect with and build our community of women entrepreneurs in the city. It is always good to share news of the various initiatives that Lionesses of Africa is rolling out for these women business builders, and also to showcase their stories and their businesses all this month on all the Lionesses of Africa platforms. I am constantly impressed by the growing number of really interesting women-owned businesses and brands emerging in Mozambique, and can see the potential for some of these businesses to really grow in size and stature over the coming months and years. It really is an exciting time to be a woman entrepreneur in this country right now.
