Recently named by Forbes as the top 10 emerging women entrepreneurs to watch in Africa, She Leads Africa finalists were selected out of nearly 400 applicants from 27 different countries across the continent and diaspora. Over the past 6 weeks they have worked with young professional mentors in the venture capital, consulting, and finance industry to refine their business plans and practiced their pitches with angels from the Lagos Angel Network.

The entrepreneurs will pitch their businesses and compete for more than $30,000 in cash and prizes at a public event on Saturday September 20 at Terra Kulture in Victoria Island, Lagos.
