As a woman inspiring the future of African Tech, Janngo’s Founder & CEO, Fatoumata Bâ was invited by IFC to share a testimony of challenges faced and lessons learned as a young West African female having held several leadership positions as a tech entrepreneur in Africa with a global recognition.

Both through her experience co-leading and growing Africa’s first unicorn and within Janngo, she advocated how critical the need of equal access to opportunities is to bridging the gender gap in Africa’s rising tech scene. She also shared how she always achieved gender balance within her teams, including at more senior or technical roles, while always keeping a meritocratic approach. She also explained how women empowerment is a critical thesis to Janngo, both directly and indirectly in grooming female founders, empowering female-led SMEs and promoting job creation at scale for women and youth.
