Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world, and their empowerment is critical in small businesses and entrepreneurship to promote gender equality and drive economic advancement.

According to a report by the World Bank, women make up about 41% of micro-business owners in Nigeria, indicating that when women are given the same chances and resources to start and grow their businesses, they not only contribute to the economy by creating jobs but also impact their communities profoundly. 

However, despite progress toward gender equality, women in the entrepreneurial sector still face significant barriers, including financial constraints, and limited access to education, and training, which hinder their ability to grow.To celebrate International Women’s Day 2024, we’re looking at how women can impact the world of business, and boost their financial literacy, legal understanding, and business management capabilities from seasoned professionals, thereby fostering networking opportunities and establishing valuable connections.

The Duke SME4HER Bootcamp program aims to address this by equipping existing and new female business owners with the knowledge, training, and opportunities essential for managing and growing their businesses online.
