Technology is one of the top sectors of choice for African women when it comes to setting up startups, according to a new survey conducted with the She Leads Africa participants.

The organisers of the pitch competition for African women entrepreneurs conducted the survey with 380 participants to gain a bit of insight into how African women are spread out across the continent’s startup scene.

Fashion, beauty and design came out as the most represented sector among the participants and services in third. The full survey findings were revealed in an infographic, you can see it below (click to enlarge):
