Founder, Chief Visionary, Co Founder Search Committee @Two Weeks Notice • Co-Founder

An online entrepreneurial education channel for women in Africa/Disaspora

Amazing things Mutale's made
The Year of the Black Woman Campaign, a series of online and in person events designed to promote black female entrepreneurship. Since January we've sent out weekly emails which are read by potential black female founders in 30 countries, 10 of which are in Africa. Hosted monthly events attracting over 500 women, generating $20,000 of revenue, used to fund the idea and will expand to DC and Philly in September. We used this community to find out what black founders really want and they told us access to founder stories, actionable tips they can use in their own companies and an online destination where people can meet and I created two weeks notice.

Emily Just recommended Two Weeks Notice where Mutale is Co-Founder

This is not just a creative idea, it's way more than that. It's essential !!! And it should happen as soon as possible!! Just the way there are incredibly talented actors who never get past waiting tables in NYC, there are amazing minds out there - women of color - who would now have access to being recognized . By simply opening this door, this network will provide new ideas, new thoughts, new faces. And at the same time, it can actually act as a vehicle for entrepreneurs. It is very exciting and I cannot wait for it to get started!!!

Game-changing organizations rewrite traditional playbooks. The stand out! They often create disproportionate value relative to their size and resources. They have big dreams but know how to get things done. Two Weeks Notice embodies this breakaway spirit creatring a road map for success targeting black women across the globe. An online entrepreneurial channel for African female founders is most relevant and urgent in the 21st century. Two Weeks Notice is on a mission to integrate the hard and soft sides of leadership into a powerful formula that makes these entrepreneurial women game-changers. Great things lie ahead.

Black women are starting businesses faster than most any other subgroup in the U.S. right now. We have the ideas, the drive, the education and the commitment but often lack the resources and support we need to enjoy sustained success. It's (long past) time to change that. That's why I support Two Weeks Notice.

Onyi Nwosu recommended Two Weeks Notice where Mutale is Co-Founder

Lombe Kasonde-Kambaila recommended Two Weeks Notice where Mutale is Co-Founder

Major challenges that are stopping women of African decent from becoming business leaders is the lack of funding, access to relevant tailored information, and tools for confidence building as well as mentoring.
Two Weeks Notice has an in depth understanding of these issues and an intimate knowledge of what it means to be a business woman of African decent. This organization truly has the power to close the entrepreneurship gap for these women and get them involved in building successful businesses. This also means building economies which in turn gets thousands of families out of poverty. I am inspired by Two Weeks Notice and could not recommend them more. They areally led by a truly awe inspiring woman of African decent.

Two Week Notice focuses on the key competences necessary for entrepreneurial success: clear vision, a strong network, a compelling narrative, and implementing a process for success. Ending the gender gap in technology and wealth is not only does social good, but adds to a society's human capital. As University of Michigan Professor Scott Page points out, economic development and advance problem-solving relies on diversity, in all forms. Mutale and Two Week Notice has a mission that contribute to that formula for success.

Entrepreneurs, in addition to financial support, need social and political capital. Two Weeks Notice can marry strong firms and leaders with the necessary external supports needed to build capacity. For communities of color in particular and for small firms more broadly, this type of conduit is a lifeline between failure and sustainability.

We live in an information age and so to survive in it today, you need to become an entrepreneur and you learn this through becoming action oriented and following your dreams. Learning how others did is a powerful way of doing as you are learning from others who walk the talk. Highly recommended platform for networking.
