Supporting Budding Women Entrepreneurs – FEW Experiences Week

Supporting Budding Women Entrepreneurs – FEW Experiences Week

The six-day event will empower women entrepreneurs on a common platform

Much has been talked about the challenges female entrepreneurs face. They often face gender bias and societal barriers that hold them back from success. Rising to the challenge to tackle gender issues in the startup realm, the Female Entrepreneurs Worldwide (FEW) is taking another step towards women empowerment by calling leaders and key opinion leaders (KOLs) under one roof to support women-led businesses. And how do they do this? The FEW Experiences Week.

About the event

Titled “FEW Experiences Week”, the six-day long event features various themes, such as “Think & Talk Like a Champion”, “How to Build Influence and Wealth” and “Build a Healthy Body and Active Mind”. Clearly, FEW makes a bold attempt to cover all skills necessary for startup founders everywhere. Along with the networking opportunities, the event hosts many activities – meditation, yoga, fashion, masterclasses, even parties! The speaker line-up boasts of women leaders, like Anina Ho, Founder & CEO of Laclary, Gwen Siu, Founder of Holistic Wellness HK and many more.

At the Business Warming Party, the energy was bustling. Indeed, the clamor and delight makes sense, considering how passionate Anna Wong, the co-Founder of FEW, is about the event. Managing a full-week event with multiple ongoing conferences is not an easy feat, and her team has planned everything down to the dot! At the close of the party, happy and worn out, Wong says, “It is important to support small businesses led by women and provide them with the essential skills to grow their business. We need a female-driven network.” Originally from Hong Kong, Anna leads FEW’s strategic developments, branding, fundraising, market-entry and business growth.

So, why women?

The idea that women should all come together and support each other is a common tie uniting the participants of the event. Olivia Chan, one of the co-founders of BeautyFact, recently launched her business, an app that uses AI skin analyzer and a database to analyze makeup products’ allergic and carcinogenic possibilities. She has her booth set up at the center of the open-space pop-up location. Chan says, “FEW is a great platform to connect with a different business network. As a founder, I can interact with target users face-to-face to understand their comments and concerns in FEW Experience Week.”

Similarly, the entrepreneurs at the network find themselves surrounded by like-minded individuals who want to make a difference. Lucie Petit, Founder of HK Model Camp, says, “I’m a professional model, and I want to share my experience working on my self-esteem with other women so we can all build up our self-confidence.”

The women come together to build each other up and meet people who are excited about making a difference. Similarly, Natasha O’Brien, the Global Senior Digital Concept Manager for Randstad, says, “At Randstad, I look at ways we can implement AI and technology to increase the value of our human interactions. But I am also a director and founding member of Inspiring Girls HK, and we aim to inspire 1 million girls in HK by connecting them with female role models from all walks of life. And I can do this through FEW too – I’ve been here since Day 1!”
