AWIEF is a not-for-profit economic empowerment organisation for all African women and girls. We are a Pan-African business networking, information and equal opportunity platform for women business owners and entrepreneurs, innovators, and social enterprises.
AWIEF advocates women equality and empowerment as drivers of development and strives to foster enhanced economic participation and opportunities for women to fast-track Africa’s transformation and inclusive sustainable growth.
AWIEF connects emerging with established women entrepreneurs and works to equip young and next generation female entrepreneurs with the tools to succeed. We provide valuable business capacity development and skills support programmes, resources and connections. We facilitate and support Africa women-owned and women-led business start-ups, growth and scaling-up.
We host the Annual AWIEF Conference and Exhibition where we debate and discuss issues negatively impacting the economic empowerment and economic security of all African women and girls, and we provide innovative solutions. At the AWIEF Conference, each year, you learn, meet exemplary individuals and organisations, grow your network, promote your business as well as get inspired, motivated and empowered by outstanding and leading African women entrepreneurs, as they share their stories, experiences and perspectives.
