  • “Being a member of WBII has been one of the best investments I have made for my business.”Vinita Salomé
  • “The WBII was the answer to all my questions … I am now a full-time entrepreneur and I would never have dared make that step without the practical/condensed knowledge boost the ladies at WBII gave me. I am very very very glad they crossed my path.” – Laure-Anne Visele
  • “For an entrepreneurial venture to succeed you need to be a part of a community, have a platform, and support to lean on to as you grow your business. WBII gave me that and much more when I launched Laboni in the Netherlands 5 years ago. It’s been an invaluable and inseparable part of my story…” – Ruchika Handa
