Ongea means “to chat” in Swahili – the most widely spoken language on the African continent. Ongea is an online community for women entrepreneurs in Africa, founded by the Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF).
AWIEF is the premier Pan-African organisation bringing leading women entrepreneurs together and fostering sustainable women entrepreneurship in Africa through its initiatives and programmes.
The primary objective of the Ongea digital community is to grow entrepreneurship on the continent, while driving membership and brand awareness for AWIEF in Africa and globally.
Ongea will provide women entrepreneurs across the African continent with a platform to inform, inspire and connect them with each other and the many resources available to entrepreneurs in Africa.
Through Ongea, AWIEF will amplify its efforts on the continent to drive entrepreneurship in Africa, particularly for women.
