Bethesda, MD – March 27, 2014
Here is an excerpt from the article:
In Africa’s burgeoning, male-dominated tech scene, women remain largely underrepresented. Yet there is a tiny handful of incredible women who are launching and building successful, innovative tech companies that are upending industries, setting new standards and earning their place at the cool table. These women create and innovate, exploiting ideas, products and services to produce dynamic businesses.
I spoke to a few African tech entrepreneurs and together, we hand-picked 10 of the brightest female tech founders in Africa.
