Laughed at

"When I first started, I wrote one goal down saying this company will one be worth N8,119,316,235.80, and everybody laughed at me.
"But I always believed in our mission. Being authentic and kind and delivering amazing products to women,” she said, fighting back the tears.

Blakely also decried that women entrepreneurs are not getting the chances their male counterparts enjoy during the speech.

“There aren’t enough women getting funding. For example, 50% of entrepreneurs are women but only 2.5% receive funding,” she said.
