Who we are
A woman-led advisory firm focused on scaling solutions to impact gender equality and climate change.
We have designed and run leadership programs for women entrepreneurs in India.
We launched an access-to-finance platform for women entrepreneurs in the Philippines with UN Women.
We run a gender-smart impact angel network in the Philippines.
We have worked with social enterprises and startups across Asia for a decade.
We are entrepreneurs who have been through the highs and lows of this journey ourselves.
We have built networks, pitched for funding, launched products, and seen the trials and tribulations of success.
We have been underestimated, beaten the odds, juggled multiple hats, succeeded and failed at balancing it all.
We believe women-led businesses can scale, be profitable, and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
We will break down, club over, run through walls that have been built by systems that do not see women entrepreneurs as equals, as worthy investments.
Why We Exist
There is a USD1.7 trillion financing gap worldwide as 80% of women-owned businesses that
need credit are under-served.
Globally, only 2% of venture capital funding goes to women-led enterprises.
Men make up 91% of the venture capitalist industry’s executive ranks. Decision-makers in financial institutions are overwhelmingly male.
A combination of risk aversion among women entrepreneurs, gender bias in the larger ecosystem,
and the lack of female representation among investors and financiers
creates a vicious cycle that has been difficult to break.
We WILL change the status quo
