I had the pleasure of speaking on one of the panels at the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NGX) International Women’s Day Webinar themed: Embrace Equity- Setting the Standard for a sustainable Future. I was on the Creating a Safe space for Women to Thrive panel moderated by Dr. Kemi Dasilva- Ibru, Founder WARIF, where I shared a bit about my journey from Investment banking to launching Aruwa Capital. I also highlighted the challenges faced by women raising funds for their business based on my experience as a female founder. The panel hosted great speakers from across various sectors- Kate Henshaw, Actress and Entrepreneur Nkechi Abiola, Founder-Lady Wheelers Association Chidinma Chukwueke-Okolo, Head Product Development- Nigerian Exchange Group and Dr. Dipo Awojide, Founder- BTDT Hub
