Taxify celebrates #WomenWithDrive to honour International Women’s Day
Taxify’s Brand Manager, Terver Bendega, at the event in Lagos, said in this women’s month, the firm decided to pay tribute to all the women across Nigeria, who have shown extraordinary drive.
Bendega said there was no harder workingwoman as the Nigerian woman. “In celebration of International Women’s Day, we asked Nigerians to nominate inspiring women who have shown drive in various fields for a chance to win a kickstarter package.
Within this package is N100, 000 cash, N50, 000 in Taxify credit and access to a network of women across various fields.
“At Taxify, we believe in empowering women to become small business owners and equipping them with the network and finances they need to scale these businesses.
We also want to show our appreciation to the amazing women partner drivers, working on the Taxify platform, who go out of their way every day to move thousands of people across their cities whilst providing for their families.“
The event, with the hashtag #WomenWithDrive, was attended by women driver-partners, celebrity influencers, media and members of the Taxify team.
Driver-partners and guests engaged in speed networking, where they shared what they were driven by, including their passions, dreams, and goals. The event ended with a presentation of cheques to five winners of the Taxify kickstarter package. Winners were young women with businesses ranging from consulting to confectionary, fashion design and art. Top female driver-partners were also rewarded with cash prizes.
According to Bendega, with Taxify, women can drive whenever they can or whenever they want. “Driver-partners can set their own schedules while maintaining a steady, independent source of income. Taxify has created work opportunities for hundreds of women since launching in Nigeria and is looking into creating thousands more in the next few years,” he stated.
The app which operates in over 35 cities across Europe and Africa is available for download on the apple IOS store and the Google play store.
