Outstanding businesswoman

Ethiopian Fair Trade pioneer and World Economic Forum’s 2011 Young Global Leader Mrs. Bethlehem Tilahum Alemu has been named Outstanding Businesswoman for this year’s African Business Awards. Bethlehem, founder of the soleRebels footwear brand, is the first fair trader to receive the tribute.

“Bethlehem is truly a remarkable entrepreneur and leader. She has built an incredibly successful company and a global brand from scratch. At the same time she has empowered her community and her country while presenting a galvanized, dynamic face of African creativity to the global market. With that in mind we are excited and honored to name her Outstanding Business Woman of the year,” Omar Ben Yedder, publisher of African Business magazine, commented on her award.

The African Business Awards is organized by the African Business magazine and the Commonwealth Business Council, as a platform to give recognition of the excellence and best practices in the African business communities.

Congratulations to Bethlehem and soleRebels!
