In South Africa, France, the United Kingdom, Japan and Hong Kong, 80% of female entrepreneurs believe that in order to succeed, they need the support of a network of female entrepreneurs. South African women are bolder than their international counterparts: 70% of SA women aspire to become entrepreneurs.

This year, for the first time, Maison Veuve Clicquot unveiled an international barometer that maps out the current state of female entrepreneurship, shedding light on common prejudices, mental and structural barriers to be overcome and how to get beyond them.

The experience was held in a beautiful setting on a warm summer’s day. Guest speakers including Johanna Mukoki, Amanda Dambuza, Lala Tuku and Azania Mosaka unpacked the findings of the barometer and mingled over a glass of Veuve Clicquot throughout the course of this pioneering experience for bold, entrepreneurial South African businesspeople who reflect the audacious spirit of Madame Clicquot.

The Veuve Clicquot X Women experience was created to encourage networking and offered guests the opportunity to engage and exchange. Women and men who are striving today to raise up a new generation of entrepreneurial women also participated in vital conversation to unpack the findings of the barometer.

More than ever, the world over, women need Role Models who inspire them. Role Models are key to women’s ability to envision their future and take the plunge into entrepreneurship. But Role Models alone no longer suffice. Women need not just inspiration but real assistance and support. This new sisterhood marks a shift of perspective, from Role Models to Role Makers: women who mentor, train, and inspire by championing other women, encouraging them to be bold and to spring into action - palpable during the reveal of the Veuve Clicquot Barometer results hosted at the Four Seasons Hotel in Johannesburg.
