5 Awesome Girl Entrepreneurs

March 07, 2021 Posted by: Kidzapp Team Parenting

Age is just a number. And with younger and younger talents sprouting up all over the world, this couldn't be more true. So with International Women's Day coming up, we wanted to cast the spotlight on five super cool girl entrepreneurs that are rocking it.

1. Lily Born

When Lily was just 7, she noticed that her grandpa, who has Parkinson’s Disease, was knocking over his cup a lot, creating spills that Grandma needed to clean up. Inspired, she came up with the idea for the Kangaroo Cup: a three-legged cup that won’t tip over. After prototyping for several years, first with hand-moldable plastic and then with clay at a pottery studio, she had a cup ready for production. Now she has sold tens of thousands of the cups all over the world.

2. Nina Devania

At just age 14, Nina Devani started her business, DevaniSoft, specializing in computer security software. She launched her first app, Prompt Me Nina, after her father’s Facebook account was hacked. Having trouble remembering his various different passwords, Devani came up with a solution – an app which would prompt you on both usernames and passwords without having to give away your actual passwords.

3. Mikaila Ulmer

After getting stung by bees a couple of times, Mikaila decided not to let her fear for them get the better of herself and rather learn more about them and what they do for our ecosystem. Around the same time, Mikaila entered a few children's business competitions where she put a new twist to her Great Granny Helen's lemonade recipe by adding honey from bees. Now, Me & the Bees Lemonade has been in business for more than 10 years and gives a percentage of their sales to help save our Earth's bees.

4. Alina Morse

At age 7, Alina was at a bank with her father, when she was offered a lollipop that her father stopped her from eating, saying that it would rot her teeth. She began thinking about how to make a lollipop that wouldn't. After 2 years of online research, at least 100 unsuccessful experiments in their home oven, stove, and microwave, and collaboration with a food scientist and her dentist on the ingredients, she finally found her magic formula. Today she is the CEO and founder of Zolli Candy, selling sugar free lollipops called Zollipops, hard candy called Zolli Drops, and taffy called Zaffi Taffy.

5. Zuriel Oduwole

Best known for her work on the advocacy for the education of girls in Africa, Zuriel Elise Oduwole became the world’s youngest filmmaker in 2014 with her documentary, 'A Promising Africa'. Zuriel has met with 24 presidents and prime ministers in line with her education advocacy work, and was listed in the New African Magazine‘s list of “100 Most Influential People in Africa”.

We are in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and The World Economic Forum predicts that by 2030, we will need to reskill more than 1 billion people, as the job landscape will have been transformed.
