Who Is Tania Habimana

Tania is a Rwandan entrepreneur with a passion for digital innovation and SME development in Africa.  She was recently nominated as part of the Digital Female Leader Awards 2018 in the 'Global Hero' category; an initiative of the Global Digital Women network. 

From driving a brands' monthly turnover from 10,000 USD to a yearly turnover of 8 Million USD in just 18 months, to leading social media campaigns attracting over 100K followers in months, Tania is a 360 digital marketer and entrepreneur, that's not afraid of being hands-on. 

Her accolades have demonstrated an understanding of business and a flair for technology, and are further exemplified by her rapid ascension up the ranks from her entry-job as a digital analyst to her position as Commercial Director for Sub-Sahara Africa of the international fashion label Suitsupply, which earned her the recognition as person responsible for the international label's market-entry and expansion into the sub-Saharan African market.

She is now the face of the British Council for the Erasmus+ Youth Mobility program and a strong advocate for Pan-African youth mobility, job creation, cross-border enterprise development and the women in tech dialogue.

“Tania did a very good job as moderator of our Youth mobility workshop held in Nouméa, New Caledonia in October 2018 during the Erasmus Days. She was able to grasp the social and economic specificities of New Caledonia and identify the actors involved in the Youth and Education sectors in a record time. Her talent for fostering stakeholder debate played a key role in renewing enthusiasm for International Mobility programmes such as Eramus +.” 

- Tiffany Ouetcho Senior Advisor to the Secretary General at Gouvernement de la Nouvelle-Calédonie -

“Super efficient, dynamic and highly competent" is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Tania. Asking her to moderate the kick-off event of the campaign for the 30th anniversary of the European Erasmus programme has been one of the best decisions I made. Both the two European Commissioners and many of the 400 people present were impressed by her enthusiasm and professionalism. She would be a strong asset to any team.” 

- Vanessa Debiais-Sainton Head of Higher Education Unit -

“Tania is an energetic, positive individual and team member. During her time at Levi's she assisted me on the digital launch of Curve ID, the new Levi's jeans range for women. She was able to work under pressure and intensive workload with her natural can-do attitude. She delivered consistent results, whether it was managing partners, video production, digital content creation, testing, and monitoring campaign performance. She demonstrated strong analytical skills, which she applied to turn stats into learnings and ideas she would regularly bring to the table. Tania is a pleasure to work with and I warmly recommend her.”
