Africa is filled with a lot of investment opportunities, as a result of the rapid growth in the middle-class of several countries. This can be attributed the blossoming free market in many of these countries, and to their governments getting more transparent. But…. There were few women actively involved. It was time for a wake-up call.

The maiden edition of the Women in Africa Conference, took place inNairobi, Kenya, October 17th-18th, 2012. "TIME TO INVEST” was the theme for the women of Africa to get up and tap into the great untapped resources and opportunities available. The main objectives were:To bring together current and future entrepreneurs and leaders.To emphasize to them that the time to invest in women is now, more than ever.To sit down and brainstorm, network, mentor and forge a way forward.To change their perspectives that business was not just for men and destroy the mentality that women cannot make it in business.In the midst of ‘nothing’ that there is something there exceptional just waiting to happen.Great women with brilliant minds who had gotten the ‘wake-up’ call earlier on, graced the occasion as speakers to motivate women around the continent to take charge.

·Strengthening Gains - Paying it Forward
