We empower every woman entrepreneur to succeed on her own terms
In the mountain villages of rural Hunan in China, there emerged a secret language created and used exclusively by women. Nüshu provided a way for the women to cope with hardships, gave them an outlet to bond and support each other, becoming a code of defiance against the highly patriarchal society of the time.
Nüshu Network is inspired by this legacy of sisterhood.
We are focused on bringing curated connections, leadership coaching and access to diverse pools of capital to entrepreneurs.
We want to see every woman entrepreneur in Asia succeed on her own terms.
