First Woman Entrepreneur in the World?

Sarah Breedlove, known as Madam C. J. Walker, was an African-American entrepreneur, philanthropist, and a political and social activist. She was considered the wealthiest African-American businesseswoman and wealthiest self-made woman in America at the time of her death in 1919 [1867-1919].
Walker made her fortune by developing and marketing a line of cosmetics and African-American hair care products for black women through the business she founded, Madam C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company.  She was born, one of six children, in a village in Louisiana, and moved North to develop her business.
