EMPOWERING BUSINESS PEOPLE
“There is a revolution going on in the world and it’s coming from the grass roots. It’s the revolution of the sustainable entrepreneurs, mainly women, and it’s about personal growth as well as an economic tool.
It’s the feminine way to create business.”
Quote by Lynne Franks
(Founder of SEED- Sustainable Enterprise and Empowerment Dynamics)
(Female Friendly Business is a trademark of Excelsya)
Established in 2009, Excelsya was borne out of a passion to provide access to business information for women, (especially mums) and making it more female friendly. We do this by researching and compiling helpful business information into directories, booklets and resources to enable busy women and mums to venture into the world of business or social enterprise.
We provide tools that is mindful of the particular challenges that they face and is not meant as a statement to exclude men but simply a way of addressing a need of a particular client group. We understand that some women identify better with other women who have been in their shoes and overcame the same obstacles to create their dream business.
We also believe in learning from and connecting with a wide range of entrepreneurs from different countries, cultures and discovering new trends and tools used for business solutions. Technology and social media for instance, has transformed the lives and progress particularly of mums in business, helping them achieve success in their unique circumstances and businesses. This in turn has developed into a self-perpetuating industry of women empowering other women into business.
Excelsya is women centric for 3 simple reasons:
1.Women are different from men not just because their bodies are different but also mostly in their different attributes and perspectives on a variety of topics including business. Their different perspective is an important contribution to the business world. Women themselves, need to recognise their contribution.
2.This is quite simply niche-marketing, except this niche is growing in enormous potential, especially in the largest market segment - mums in business or mumpreneurs.
3.It is generally accepted that there is a large gender gap in the number of women business owners to men. This gap varies around the globe but in social enterprise, the gap is much narrower. This is a global issue, many governments around the world see potential benefits to their economies, when more women are enabled to contribute financially.
EQUALITY is not always about having exactly the same as everyone else.
It is more about having ACCESS to the same opportunities as everyone else,
to achieve what is right for you. No one wants token gestures and quotas.
A level playing field offers everyone a chance to create their ideal business,
with that comes individuality and a different perspective.
Variety as they say, is ‘the spice of life’. It is also good for business!
