An entrepreneur taking over the online fashion industry

The e-retail revolution will come from Africa!

Kelechi Anyadiegwu was raised in the US but she has always kept Nigerian culture close to her heart thanks to her family heritage, “so African prints and textiles were always a part of my life,” she said to Madame Noire. She therefore founded Zuvaa, an e-commerce site featuring African-inspired items.

Her initiative has been a huge success – she even managed to get a nomination in 2015 for the “Appsafrica Innovation Award” in the “Women in tech award” category”, and she also earned a spot in the prestigious Forbes 2016 “30 Under 30” list. Congrats!

 

Her piece of advice for the millenials trying to find their fit in the entrepreneurship world: "believe in your vision". It's pretty clear she took it literally.

You go, girl!
