What we do

Our mission is to inspire, connect and fund female social entrepreneurs and changemakers who have bold and transformative social innovation projects.

Inspire

Our multimedia library shares best practices, advice and the inspira- tions of female change- makers with each other, the next generation of social entrepreneurs and society at-large.

Connect

Our think tank houses our capacity-building course and workshops, and connects change- makers to each other and to the social entre- preneurial eco-system.

Fund

Our crowdfunding platform provides social entrepreneurs and changemakers with an online method to secure funding for their ventures.

The Problem

We interviewed a sample of 1,500 female social entrepreneurs from over 100 countries who all said they faced these same two BIG problems:

1. Access to capital

Women and girls have trouble accessing capital and building critical capacity skills that are necessary to create viable business models, launch sustainable ventures and secure backing from funders.

2. Isolation and Feelings of loneliness

Female changemakers often deal with isolation and feelings of loneliness due to gender discrimination, disempowering cultural and religious beliefs and little or no access to technology and information.
