Every year in May, Startup Grind hosts #SGWomen Leaders Month — proudly recognizing the accomplishments of successful women leaders all over the world. These are the women who exemplify profound leadership skills, hard-work, humility and success, and demonstrate their strength with devotion to the work they do everyday. Their resilience serves as a source of never ending inspiration.

About this event

Startup Grind’s #SGWomen -- launched five years ago -- is about putting a heightened focus and an awareness on our everyday mission to create more inclusive communities. Never has Startup Grind’s mission been more potent than in the realm of entrepreneurship, startups, business, and representing women everywhere in the tech space.

According to Lionesses of Africa, 'Kenya is a dynamic and exciting place to be a woman entrepreneur right now. It has become a center for innovation and entrepreneurship; it’s a world leader in mobile money systems like M-pesa; it has a long tradition of highly creative brand builders producing world class solutions, designs and products that the world is falling in love with. It also has a strong entrepreneurial spirit that is deeply rooted, and it is women entrepreneurs who are taking that spirit to a whole new level.'

It is important that we recognize, listen to and encourage these women as we work toward building a more inclusive ecosystem. Anyone and everyone who believes in the mission of working towards change  --  men and women alike  --  should come to our May Event.

Startup Grind’s mission is to educate, inspire, and connect  -- ultimately helping every entrepreneur in the world. We want to do the type of work we are proud of.

We want to produce work that helps others, even if it's only in a small way.
