Map Your Journey

Short thesis

Join us as we share and visualize in real-time the journeys of 3 inspiring African women. We will map their turning points, the highs and the lows. Come in and create your own journey map too!


In a TED-style format, 3 African women who have founded successful businesses will take the stage to share their journey into entrepreneurship (lessons learnt, milestones reached, challenges faced, etc) to inspire the audience.

In real-time, an artist will graphically and colorfully represent the journey of each of the speakers on a giant Journey Mapping Board. During the last 30 minutes of the session, participants will be given the opportunity to reflect on their own journeys so far and map out what's next for them using a DIY kit. 

We will highlight the importance of mapping one’s journey not only from a retrospective point but also from a prospective point.  As we approach the New Year, what are the things you have in mind to achieve? Let's map them out.
