FFI-MEA Summer Business Retreat

04 - 08 NOVEMBER 2022

Female Founders Initiative Middle East & Africa (FFIMEA) hosted its Annual Summer Business Retreat at Melia Resort, Zanzibar. The theme for this retreat was “WOMEN CAN”.

The main objective was to help women from all professional backgrounds escape their hectic lives and learn from each other, share their successes, laugh, network and strategize on what comes next.

In the networking sessions, women had the opportunity to engage with some of the brightest and most inspiring women in the Middle East and Africa. 

FFIMEA signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Chairman of Zanzibar Chamber of Commerce (ZNCC), Mr. Ali Amour, in order to facilitate further trade between the female founders and the people of Zanzibar. This was witnessed by, The Minister of Investment and Foreign Trade, Mr. Ramadhan Mudrik Soraga.  We believe that this collaboration would help in the scaling up of women entrepreneurship and women empowerment.
