The Connecting Women in Business (Co-WIB) is a program created to empower women in business across borders: Connecting Nordic and South & Eastern African Markets.
“Our mission is to foster a thriving and inclusive business ecosystem that unites ambitious women entrepreneurs and professionals from the Nordic region with their counterparts in the South and Eastern African markets. Through our platform, we strive to create an unparalleled space for women to connect, grow, inspire, partner, promote, and invest in each other’s ventures. By facilitating meaningful collaborations and knowledge exchange, we aim to empower women-led businesses, drive economic growth, and cultivate a sustainable network that transcends geographical boundaries. Together, we harness the collective power of diverse talents, forging lasting partnerships that enrich lives, fuel innovation, and pave the way for a brighter future for women in business.”
It is very clear from the developments in the business world that there is a huge gap when it comes to women and equity inclusiveness. We at Afrika Consultancy thrive to be part of moving the needle in this area with our Co-WIB program.
