Rise in women entrepreneurship has been quite vivid in the past few years as we keep establishing organizations and move on to own an empire. While many have achieved success in establishing their identity as a founder, many others are struggling to get known to the world.
Tracing its origins in the Aesop’s Fables, the phrase that goes “United we stand, divided we fall”, partially springs into play here. If you are an already established female founder, then you know the struggles of being one and others could use a little bit of help from you. In the business world, where women founders and leaders are underrepresented and striving to obtain VC supports and funding, it is necessary for women to survive and most importantly contribute to the overall growth of women entrepreneurship.
We may feel that by supporting others to achieve what we have achieved or have nearly achieved would be a harsh blow on our hard work, but that’s not the actual scenario. Integrity within any collaboration has proved to be effective for both sides and so it is here as well. Sisterhood is not just watching your sister grow but helping her in that journey which brings success to both you and her.
If you have come along female founders with common interests or with a similar taste in business — offer partnerships. Forming such partnerships can help you gain opportunities that you were in search of and even clients to contribute to your growth. You can also draw strategies that would benefit both the companies equally with much ease.
Many women with great entrepreneurship skills or marketing skills are out there looking for proper work environment. Hiring such women could prove to be turning point for you that would let you rise high in this world.
Being or having a mentor is a boon for you. Either way you will be able to learn a lot and help other women learn about shaping their career in business.
Feedback and Recommendations
Networking with efficient and talented women entrepreneurs and founders allows you to get recommendations and proper feedback that would contribute in your improvement. Similarly, providing others with recommendations and valuable feedback could help both sides gain credibility.
Being united in the field of business helps you and other women entrepreneurs and founders to build a strong chain of women empowerment in the business world. It is a backbone for you and others to accomplish success.
