TechWomen Alumna Lands on Forbes Middle East’s 30 Under 30

For Ameni Mansouri, a TechWomen 2015 alumna from Tunisia, making it on Forbes Middle East’s 30 Under 30 list has always been one of her dreams, but how could she make it happen? We caught up with Ms. Mansouri, CEO & co-founder of fashion marketplace Dabchy, to find out and to congratulate her on this honor during Women’s History Month.

How does it feel to make it on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list?

AM: “It has always been one of my dreams, but I did not know how to approach it – I did not know whether it is earned through achievements or through personal application! When a journalist reached out to me, it was a surreal moment. I am really both happy and proud! I am so proud of my team, without whom nothing would have been possible. Being featured on this list means a lot to me. It is the result of a lot of hard work, sacrifice and networking.”

How did participating in the TechWomen exchange program help your career?

AM: “The program gave me the opportunity to learn deeply about IT companies, and allowed me to develop new resolutions that I started applying to my own startup since I returned from my exchange experience. TechWomen did also help me improve my personal, social and communication skills, and enabled me to develop my self-confidence and my leadership skills! With TechWomen, I received the international support and inspiration that I needed for the growth of my business.”

What advice would she give to other TechWomen alumnae (and fellow women entrepreneurs)?

AM: “To all my fellow TechWomen and women entrepreneurs all over the world, be sure that ‘Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back,’ so keep supporting each other and never be afraid to chase your dreams!
