She Leads Africa is taking these 8 female entrepreneurs to pitch in the US

Diaspora Demo Day

Woman empowerment initiative She Leads Africa recently announced the eight startups that will be traveling to the US to pitch at Diaspora Demo Day.

Diaspora Demo Day is said to be the largest gathering of African startups, entrepreneurs and angel investors outside of the continent. Taking place in Washington DC, US near the end of November, this event will showcase both innovative tech and social companies as well as keynotes and demonstrations.

The initiative is hosted by Tiphub — an accelerator and business consultancy that develops and supports seed stage technology and social impact ventures within Africa and the African Diaspora. The event is also co-produced by She Leads Africa and the Africa Technology Foundation.

In the spirit of celebrating women in tech and entrepreneurship, She Leads Africa will be taking the following exciting companies to Diaspora Demo Day:
