Dear Womanpreneur, there’s a new female Angel Investor in Town

by | Aug 26, 2015

Linda Ikeji has just announced her very first batch of female-founded start-ups in her “I’d rather be self-made” project. The project was as a result of her own life story and also a way to give back to the community.

The first phase of the application saw over 800 applications and after a rigorous review of applications and business idea proposals through several pitching sessions, 15 ladies were selected receiving grants between N150,000 t0 N1,000,000 and free marketing on the Linda Ikeji blog.
