    Inspiring African Female Tech Founder Stories

  • About

    Founding Women is a book spotlighting African Female founders who are building technology businesses across Africa and the Diaspora.


    Our goal is to shape a new narrative about African women as innovation leaders and highlight role models to inspire the next generation.


    We will be interviewing amazing trailblazers such as Rebecca Enonchong - CEO of AppsTech ( Forbes 10 Female Tech Founders To Watch In Africa ) and Hilda Moraa - Founder & CEO of Pezesha ( She previously founded Weza Tele, the first African tech startup to successfully exit when it was acquired by Jumo.World in 2015) as well as other established and upcoming founders working in energy, health, software and fintech.


    Join our crowdfunding campaign from end of July - September 2017 to pre-order copies of the book. Proceeds from the campaign will go towards supporting our #HerFutureAfrica accelerator equipping the next generation of founding women.


    Founding Women and #HerFutureAfrica are initiatives by the Africa Technology Business Network
