Africa Women Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF)

In 2015 ICO Conferences and Events launched AWIEF, to create a discussion and a platform which supports an enabling environment for women to grow as successful entrepreneurs, to be economically and socially empowered, and to learn from various experiences and challenges across borders.

Outstanding African women from various African countries and the Diaspora candidly shared words, wisdom and stories of the experiences they have undergone in their professional and entrepreneurial journeys, the hard won lessons and the truth about the business world that not many people will tell you. Our young and emerging women entrepreneurs who massively attended were highly inspired and motivated.

A critical reflection on what is needed to accelerate sustainable development led to the joint agreement that all African States should really put their money where their mouths are and start investing in women and be proactive in promoting the culture of mentorship and entrepreneurship to boost the African economy and alleviate poverty.
