Our AWIEF2023 Conference and Awards was a huge success! It is a testament to the power of unity and shared commitment towards the economic empowerment of women and the important role of the AWIEF platform for supporting and celebrating women entrepreneurs.

AWIEF has announced the winners of the 2023 AWIEF Awards. Many inspirational and outstanding African women entrepreneurs excelled this year in creating opportunities and positively impacting lives and communities, driving growth for Africa.
