What has been your biggest hurdle?

Our biggest hurdle has been overcoming the entrenched norms and challenges faced by women in the business world. Despite the strides made towards gender equality, we continue to encounter barriers that hinder the advancement of women entrepreneurs, including access to funding, mentorship, and support networks. Breaking through these barriers requires persistent advocacy, education, and collaboration with stakeholders across industries and communities. Additionally, navigating the rapidly evolving landscape of digital innovation presents its own set of challenges, requiring continuous adaptation and investment in technology and skills development. However, through resilience, determination, and a steadfast commitment to our mission, we strive to dismantle these barriers and create a more inclusive and equitable ecosystem for all entrepreneurs to thrive.
