MARIÉME JAMME

OkayAfrica's 100 Women celebrates African women who are making waves, shattering ceilings, and uplifting their communities.

Mariéme Jamme is a Senegalese business woman in the technology sphere. Through her consultant company, Spotone Global Solutions, she helps tech companies expand in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. She was listed in Britain's 100 Most influential people of African and African Caribbean heritage, and in Forbes' 2012 list of 20 youngest powerful women in Africa.




Jamme, who faced several challenges in her childhood, persevered and taught herself how to read and write at the age of 16. Besides being an entrepreneur, she is passionate about empowering young girls and providing educational platforms for them. Thus, she started JJiguene Tech Hub—the first women's STEM organization of Senegal.
