365 days in the year to be a businesswoman, a career lady, a champion, thought leader, visionary, a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a lover, a friend, and much more, and one day to choose you!
Celebrating International Women’s Day and adopting the 2021 IWD themed “Choose to Challenge”, First City Monument Bank (FCMB) will be hosting its annual Women’s Day celebration, happening on the 4th March 2021 by 4 PM with a projected number of 5000 virtual attendees and a very special guest, Her Excellency, Mrs Oludapo Osinbajo.
This year, we are celebrating the FCMB SheVentures’ 2nd anniversary of always choosing you.
We choose to celebrate you.
We choose to stand with you.
We choose to stand by you.
We choose to Challenge you!
SheVentures is FCMB’s value proposition designed to provide women-owned businesses with vital tools to thrive and scale. They achieve this by giving Women SMEs access to capital, knowledge, networks, and markets. Since the formal launch of the initiative in 2019, SheVentures has impacted over 10,000 female entrepreneurs across the nation.
The anniversary event is also a commemoration of International Women’s Day (IWD) and is always an occasion to celebrate the enormous contributions women consistently make towards nation-building. The theme for this year’s IWD is ‘Choose to Challenge’, a call to women across the globe to challenge myths and stereotypes associated with women either in business, careers, or society at large. As a leading woman in tech challenging the investment landscape, the goal is to inspire businesswomen across the nation to rise above challenges and proceed to build sustainable and scalable businesses.
