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.

Flora Mutahi is the Founder & CEO of Melvin March International owners of Kenya’s largest flavored tea brand. In 1995, Flora heard about the planned deregulation of the tea industry in Kenya. She saw this as an opportunity and with very little industry knowledge and resources, she decided to go into the tea business. While enjoying a cup of tea one day, she had a light bulb moment and discovered a gap in the market. This led her to create Kenya’s first flavored tea brand – Melvins Teas. Today, the product range has expanded to include not only flavored teas but herbal and fruit infusions.
