Daughters of Botany was inspired by the Hibiscus flowers in my mother’s garden in the coastal city of Port-Harcourt, Nigeria. So it was only fitting for us to give back to that wonderful community.

We’ve partnered with Rivers of Unicorns, a virtual accelerator, to bring business support to start ups and aspiring start up owners in the city’s underserved communities, setting them on a path to exponential growth.

As part of this initiative I co-host the Rivers of Unicorns podcast interviewing founders from out of Port-Harcourt, Nigeria. The podcast also airs on radio each week and is listened to in the city’s Rivers of Unicorns hubs.

Following a viral video that showed the plight of inner city homeless children, we’re partnering with Port-Harcourt city’s network of Start up founders to reach homeless youth with safe housing, education and skills to equip them for life in the future. This initiative is in partnership with Rivers of Unicorns and The Caywood Brown Foundation.
