Social Networking for Entrepreneurial Women


In pursuance of entrepreneurial excellence!



Social Networking Platform for Entrepreneurial Women

The Women In Business organisation is a social networking platform available to all entrepreneurial women via

  • events and functions 
  • or virtually.  (Currently all events and interactions are virtual.   The safety and health of our members is of paramount important, hence no physical events or functions have been planned for the immediate future)

Whether you are a leader, a manager, an entrepreneurial employee or self-employed you need to join #WomenInBusiness.
Sharing of knowledge, skills and encouragement will lead to positive impacts on you as a person and on the organisation you work for or you lead. 

  • Networking opportunities,
  • sound boarding,
  • business support
  • training
  • linkages to fellow entrepreneurs.

Our reach goes far and wide extending throughout South Africa and internationally.  

As the award winning 2018/2019 South African & South African Development Community (SADC), Africa’s Most Influential Women in Business & Government – SME Sector – we would like to help encourage you to take your business to the next level.
