The She.Business Awards by The Purple Network

I received an email about the She.Business Awards by The Purple Network, and my first question was, who is the Purple Network?

The Purple Network designs and implements economic empowerment projects for women and youth in enterprise. We achieve this by partnering with local and international donor agencies, the private sector and government agencies in East Africa.The Purple Network was registered in 2012 and believes that enterprise development is crucial to job and wealth creation in Africa.

The Purple Network was co-founded by two women: Nyambia Gatahi – Beatriceand Joan Nasimiyu Orina.

The Purple Network recently launched the She.Business Awards to recognize enterprising women who are doing business in Kenya. This is the only word focused on women entrepreneurs running their business in various categories, among them ICT and Agriculture.

The competition is open to women who have been running their businesses for a minimum of one year and have at least three employees. The most enterprising women will benefit from publicity, access to market linkages through the conference and will be supported to grow their businesses for a period of one year. The award will be rolled out in three phases; nomination, selection process and grand finale, which will include the women in enterprise conference and an award ceremony.

The nomination process is now open so you are free to nominate women who are running their businesses successfully, women with inspiring stories that can encourage other women to realize that success in business is achievable.
