Startup Grind Lagos, as well as the 500+ chapters of Startup Grind across the world, will be celebrating women entrepreneurs and leaders at their meetup on May 25.

Every month of May, Startup Grind proudly recognizes the accomplishments of successful women leaders, including founders, venture capitalists, engineers and executives, who represent the the startup community. This custom is strategic as United States, where Startup Grind is headquartered, also celebrates Mothers' Day in May.

The meetup is tagged #SGWomen Leaders Month.
