Innovate, undertake, while helping women, children and the environment. This is the ambition of these women who want to give meaning to their business. Like Whitney Wolfe, 31, founder of the Bumble dating application. This co-founder of Tinder suffered sexual harassment from her "ex" and partner, before being approached by the founder of Badoo in 2014 to launch an application that empowers women. Bumble lets them write the first message after a match and punishes the harassment. The group, valued at 3 billion dollars, was bought by Blackstone at the end of 2019 and handed over the reins.

In France, Fanny Picard set up Alter Equity, one of the few funds with a social and environmental impact. Aged 52, she has just raised €110 million to finance start-ups such as Ilek, which distributes renewable energy, or Les Ripeurs, which collects waste. A former Société Générale executive, Diana Brondel runs Xaalys, a platform that educates teenagers on how to manage pocket money and finance projects in a fun way. Parents love it. This diplomat's daughter based her technical team in Dakar. Isabelle Masholaa 58-year-old engineer, founded IsahitThe company's digital outsourcing platform enables 10,000 women in French-speaking Africa to make ends meet by entering data or filing files for the sites of multinationals such as L'Oréal and Orange.
