Who we are
a better world. powered by women
Our mission: To help women to make a positive impact on people and planet by enabling them to learn, lead and connect.
What does it mean? We believe influential and connected women with bold solutions to social and environmental issues, can create sustainable opportunities to make the world a better place.
Why it is important? By taking women out of the shadows, equipping them and connecting them to influential stakeholders, we grow the pool of entrepreneurial opportunities, we advocate for equality -a fundamental foundation- , and we help them to have a bigger positive social impact.
Our customers: The women we work with are activists, social entrepreneurs, members of campaigning organisations, sme's or larger organisations, who, by their activities, are, or can become, influential social leaders, provide practical solutions to social and environmental needs, and change many people’s lives for the better.
We call these women Social Innovators. So far we have worked with over 2600 of them.
We do not exclude men, on the contrary! By including them in the thought process and helping them to invest and support women social entrepreneurs, campaigners and innovators, we will get better results quicker.
The team: The team has global experience in organisational reviews and business planning, european funding, social innovation branding and trends, information and knowledge management, social impact measurement, strategy reviews, leadership and executive support, collaboration and stakeholder management.

Increased Sense of Connectedness- where our intervention helps women to manage greater numbers, quality and relevant knowledge, and power networks.
