Women in financial technology (Fintech) have been urged to be patient if they are to cultivate and grow successful tech enterprises.

Speaking during the Women in Fintech hackathon on Monday, Prof. Maggie Kigozi, the Women in Fintech chief mentor, said all entrepreneurs have to hustle for years before breaking through.

“You need to have patience; start small, save and run enterprise ethically. It takes time to build a business, but with persistence, you can make it,” she said.
