Women's History Month may be coming to a close, but we want to share one more woman whose impact has been too large to ignore. Servane Mouazan, is dedicated to supporting women led startups. A common thread to how these women live there lives has emerged; find your passion, don't give up, don't let anyone tell you no and change will happen. The inspiration I have felt researching and writing these posts has been immeasurable. Thank you to all the women who have paved the way before us so we may continue the journey.
Servane Mouazan - Founder of Oguntê, a B Corp certified Community Interest Company (CIC)
Like many women Servane Mouazan's life has had some twists and turns, but speaking 5 languages has helped her cultivate a global network of impact driven women dedicated to spearheading conscious social entrepreneurship.

The mission was to help 250 women grow 250 social businesses in 250 days.
