Akaego Okoye: Founder and Host African Business Stories – What to Expect in Season 2.
Welcome to Season 2 of the African Business Stories podcast!
African Business Stories is your insight into female innovators and entrepreneurs building and running businesses in Africa. In this new season, we will continue our journey across the continent learning more about the experiences of female founders in different African countries.
Another goal for the season is to go beyond the stories and explore solutions to some of the issues identified. We will also hear from those supporting female businesses and SME’s in Africa and explore the tools and resources available to help them grow and thrive.
My hope is that the podcast will inspire and multiply success not only on the continent but around the world.
