    Invest Africa Insights - A Man's World? Investment in Female Entrepreneurship

    There is great potential for innovation and growth in Africa’s female entrepreneurs; Africa is the only region in the world where more women than men choose to become entrepreneurs, they may be the ‘Future of the Africa Continent’, as the World Bank notes.

    Yet challenges remain to female entrepreneurs trying to grow their businesses: lack of access to capital due to insufficient collateral, discriminatory property rights in some regions, as well as cultural and psycho-sociological constraints. The role for investors in combatting  these challenges has been increasing in prominence, indicated by the rise of gender-smart and gender-lens investing.
