Women Entrepreneurs are inspiring. An entrepreneur is someone that organizes, manages, and assumes the risk of a business enterprise. Today, more women are breaking free from the traditional, gender-specific roles and venturing into the business world. Not only are they holding high corporate positions but they are also successful women entrepreneurs. The steady rise in female entrepreneurs can be due to many different reasons, most of which share the same rationale as their male counterparts—passion for their ideas, the desire to become their own boss, and the need to address philanthropic causes. BrandAfrica: Women in Business Awards 2021 is a celebration of women’s power and leadership.
