Magatte Wade is passionate about entrepreneurship and creating high-end retail brands based on diverse African traditions that change the perception of Africa.
Senegalese entrepreneur Magatte Wade sits down with Matt Kibbe to tell how she discovered why some countries are rich, why others are poor, and why the French are the worst.
Serial entrepreneur (and self-described “radical optimist’) Magatte Wade became inspired to tackle poverty by reverse engineering a profound curiosity of consumer brand power. Her passion and understanding of free market principles has led to the creation of three companies including her latest — Skin Is Skin — which is also tackling unconscious bias. Magatte’s thoughtful approach to race and to the impact we as individuals can have is incredibly thought provoking and inspiring! She defines success this way, “If because of me one person lived better, then that is success.” The post Magatte Wade, social impact entrepreneur who is putting free market principles & consumer brand power to work addressing poverty (Episode #31) appeared first on She Said / She Said.
Many African countries are poor for a simple reason, says entrepreneur Magatte Wade: governments have created far too many obstacles to starting and running a business. In this passionate talk, Wade breaks down the challenges of doing business on the continent and offers some solutions of her own -- while calling on leaders to do their part, too.
