Success Stories

FROM OUR MEMBERS 

Clara Chinwe Okoro, Founder of My Beautiful Africa 

"The Future Females Business School programme has been quite a smasher. I have gained so much knowledge that has genuinely transformed my processes and I think it had to do with the fact that it is a
Female-led community that understands the challenges of breaking down knowledge for female-run business owners. I am so passionate about technology transforming my business as never before. My
business is more visible online now with the digital tools I am adopting to reach my Big Hairy Audacious Goal."



Adebisi Borokinni, Founder of MyInvest

"First, I must say that this is the most practical and impactful business-related programme, I have ever attended. The lessons and coaching sessions were the best. What I have learnt from Future Females that has repositioned my entrepreneurial journey includes; Your MVP is very important, you have to grow
your business in a lean way and test your idea before putting in all efforts and resources. Thank you
Future Females, it was definitely more than I asked for. I can’t wait to put into practice all I was taught. Love you guys."






Susanne Ogunleye, Founder of Jasmine Ultra Blue Solutions

"When I started the programme my business didn’t have a good digital presence and sales channels. But since the programme and improvement of my knowledge we have had 10 times more sales in the last 2
months than before the programme. We also had sales come in from our website which has never happened before and secured projects in other parts of the country. The coaches were also very relatable and ready to answer any questions. It was indeed an amazing programme. There are some lessons I will still watch over again and I am grateful we will still have access to the material and the community."

Mary Abiodun, Founder of Colibri Africa

“One of the reasons I joined the Future Females Business School was to increase the marketing skills that my business required. I and my co-founders gained more clarity for our service offerings and communications. While I was in the programme, I researched how to send personalised marketing
emails. I tried a marketing campaign and I got a 75% open rate in 2 days which was very impressive for me. With some of the ideas and lessons gained from the programme, I see us serving more customers in global markets and helping them take charge of their productivity. I would highly
recommend the programme because of the well thought-out content you get access to."
