Did you know that November is ‘Women Founders Month’?

November celebrates ‘Women Founders Month’ with events by Iterative and Uncommon, empowering female entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia. Join and grow!

I hate to admit it, but I was unaware until Wan Wei sent me the LinkedIn post from iterative about it. Here’s the summary (yes, I got Aria AI to summarise this for me):

November is dedicated to women founders, featuring a series of events and initiatives by Iterative and Uncommon, focusing on supporting and empowering female entrepreneurial leaders in Southeast Asia. The month-long celebration includes:

SEA checks: Women founders edition (throughout November): A fundraising initiative where women founders can submit pitch decks to a group of investors. This prioritises applications from women due to the historical underfunding they face.

Fireside discussion on navigating startup risks (November 15): An in-person event in Singapore’s CBD featuring a panel of successful women founders and investors. The discussion will focus on risk-taking in entrepreneurship and strategies for de-risking startup launches.

20-minute virtual office hours for women founders (November 20 to 24): Iterative team members offer one-on-one guidance sessions for women founders, regardless of their startup’s stage or investment status.

The highs and lows of being a woman founder in Southeast Asia (November 30): A virtual panel event discussing the unique challenges and triumphs of being a woman founder in the region. Topics include fundraising, managing stress, and handling double standards.

The initiative aims to create spaces for candid discussions, learning, and building connections among women founders and investors. It’s part of Iterative’s ongoing commitment to supporting women in entrepreneurship, moving beyond one-off events and International Women’s Day celebrations. Registration is required for these events, with limited capacity for some. Interested individuals can contact [email protected] or [email protected] for more information or to register.

November hasn’t ended yet, so ladies, let’s make the best of the month.

P.S. If you’ve read my latest social posts, I’ve shared that I’m doing a new segment called β€˜Royal Confessions‘ where I’ll share the highs and lows of my side hustle success and full-time commitments. If you haven’t signed up, well, the time is now!
