Launched in 2016 by She Leads Africa, a social enterprise that encourages African women to build the businesses and careers of their dreams, SheHive is gearing up for a South African take over like no other this February. SheHive, an innovative professional bootcamp, which has been hosted in key African cities, including Lagos, Accra, Abuja, Nairobi, JHB and CPT, is making its highly anticipated return to South Africa.

Through the SheHive bootcamps, they are able to help young professionals develop their career and business skills, join a community of leaders, and network with mentors and investors. “We’re so excited to be coming back to South Africa, following our first sold out SheHiveJHB which we hosted in 2016. The SLA team is passionate about uplifting and advancing women and with the help of our facilitators, we hope each guest will leave with the necessary skills to help them reach their potential in their businesses and careers,” said Yasmin Belo-Osagie (Co-Founder: She Leads Africa).
