Globally, women have been and continue to be innovative, enterprising and industrious across various sectors in business. The influence and impact of women entrepreneurs in the transformation of economies of both developed and developing countries cannot be over emphasized.

From startups to small and medium sized businesses to large corporations, women have played and continue to play significant roles in creating jobs, introducing innovative solutions to critical challenges, producing relevant products and services and creating wealth.

In Sub-Saharan Africa and particularly in Ghana, statistically, there are more women entrepreneurs and women-run businesses than their male counterparts. Despite the diverse responsibilities and challenges women face, their tenacity, resilience, commitment, passion, ingenuity, vision and exploits are worth recognizing and celebrating.

In line with that, WomanRising, a subsidiary of The African Network of Entrepreneurs (TANOE) launched the search for the 100 Most Outstanding Women Entrepreneurs in Ghana (100MOWE) to honour, celebrate and generate public recognition of the achievements and contributions of 100 of the most inspiring and influential women in business in Ghana. The 100MOWE list captures women entrepreneurs from various sectors including Technology, Education, Food processing, Health, Real Estate, Media, Fashion, Beauty & Cosmetics, Consulting, Social Enterprise and so on.

In a conversation with Ekow Mensah, the founder of WomanRising and CEO of TANOE, he iterated the importance of Women Entrepreneurs and the significant role they play in the development of economies and solving socio-economic issues. He said that the introduction of the WomanRising 100 Most Outstanding Women Entrepreneurs list is aimed at encouraging and supporting women entrepreneurs in their pursuit of building globally competitive businesses, growing the private sector and the economy of Ghana. He congratulated all the women entrepreneurs that made it on the 1st Edition of the WomanRising 100MOWE List.
