Promoting female entrepreneurship

Learn about

Young female entrepreneurs

Two sisters

They borrowed some money from their parents, and three years later, they have nine employees and clients in 15 countries, including five royal families (which they are not allowed to name)

A New York Empire

... according to The New York Post she now has 190 clients. Not a bad effort for a 15 year old. It is also reported that she made over US$480,000 from the business and has had to hire a chief executive to manage the business daily. After all, she is still at school!

$20 million in sales

They were 10 and 11 years old. They had an idea. It is now a multi-million dollar business.

Social entrepreneur

Her idea helps the community. Her idea uses local resources? Her idea received United Nations recognition for its innovation and appropriateness.

Empower Encourage

Parents empower your daughters; Teachers develop awareness among all students of successful female entrepreneurs. No excuses!

Don't be silent!

The world would be a better place with more female entrepreneurs!

Leadership

Sheryl Sandberg, COO at Facebook

I want every little girl who’s been told she’s bossy to be told again she has leadership skills.

Create opportunity

Ken Swan, Founder The Wealth Academy

As a parent, as a teacher, as a role model, you have to create opportunity for girls to reach through the media biases and ancient mindsets that still prevail. Don't deny them the chance.

Follow your passion

Oprah Winfrey

Follow your passion — and if you don’t know what it is, realize that one reason for your existence on earth is to find it.

Breakthroughs

Marissa Mayer (CEO Yahoo)

I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough. (Help your female students breakthrough!)

Class response

May

The girls in the class loved the real stories and the links. They had lots of questions. It was interesting how 'risk' became a key topic suddenly. They also wanted to know about the support of parents! Watch out!

Helping my daughter

Sue

My daughter likes the idea of being a business person, but has had no prior experiences of this within our family. This course is a gentle way to introduce some entrepreneurial concepts to her, without it being too heavy and too long. Good job, thanks.

Starting simply

Harry

My daughter and son chose not to do business studies at school, but still like the idea of being entrepreneurial. This course gives them a nice intro and along with your other youth entrepreneurship course, gives them a lot of things to think about. I like the idea of keeping it simple so it doesn't turn the kids away.

A nice mix

Iqbal

My kids think they will all be successful business people. This course has two benefits for me. My son can see the wonderful examples of young women as entrepreneurs, and my daughter can see excellent role models. I like to sit beside the kids when they do this. Helps keep them on track!

Onward and upward

Michelle

My daughter feels inspired. Some really nice examples within. I also like how you haven't made these courses too heavy or too long. Keeping it light but purposeful was the correct way to go. I also liked the links to the www. This encourages my daughter to start having a look for herself.

Social entrepreneurship

Dana

Good to see the inclusion of social entrepreneurship. Like a lot of kids, my daughter wants to save the planet. (I hope she succeeds!)

Co-ed benefit

Mike

Highlighting female entrepreneurs was good to do in my class. The boys benefitted because the conversation became robust about the characteristics which were identified as female specific. It can be difficult to get students to talk, but not this week!
