Women’s empowerment in the contemporary world of business is unfortunately still a popular topic. While large, eminent companies, such as Coca Cola and World Bank Organization, completely understand how the woman’s role in business is imperative for the growth of company, there are still businesses all across the world that are unfortunately skeptic towards placing women on important positions in the year 2016.
It is no secret that women are simply naturally better at certain things. Accounting, access to capital, understanding the importance of responsibility – while the boys are at play women plow the way to success. Maybe the truth behind this phenomenon is the fact that women had to work harder to establish themselves as professionals in the world of business. Narrowing the gender gap has always been a sole task of females in every industry, and we have to give credit to those women who struggled, fought and managed to direct businesses to success.
This is why we have compiled a short list of the most impressive Women in Startup ever. Don’t mind us if we forgot to mention someone in the following list, there is hardly any categorization behind the presented except of the fact that they are utterly impressive.
The magnate in the world of industrial design and revolutionary technology, Kegan Schouwenburg, is one of the founders of the company SOLS. By introducing ground-breaking solutions into the design of the orthotic shoes, Kegan managed to build a multimillion company that is still running smoothly, almost as her consumers.
Aashi Vel and Steph Lawrence
This dynamic duo came up with the idea of connecting avid world travelers with the very best dining experience all across the world. So if you find yourself visiting some distant exotic destination and looking for the best meal that you can get, you will simply love the Traveling Spoon app. Aashi and Stephanie are the two women behind this extremely popular concept and the ones that you will have to thank to when tasting exquisite dishes you’ve never heard of in the distant parts of our planet.
While we are on the subject of travel, you’ve probably heard about the Hitlist app. This neat little app helps you find the cheapest traveling solutions by performing a detail search of flights, th best deals possible and affordable ticket prices. Truly a handy tool for all travelers, and the women that got the idea for this popular app is called Gillian Morris. In her own words, traveling made her a better entrepreneur, and she enjoys sharing that experience with the world.
One of the co-founders and the CEO of the Control platform, Kathryn is probably the best example of how a woman can thrive in the competitive world of finances. This app helps businesses manage all revenues, incomes, taxes and payments that they receive and is broadly accepted. She is truly an inspiring model which shows us that the “weaker sex” isn’t as weak when it comes to crucial factors of businesses.
Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg
One more awesome duo for the very end, Carly and Danielle were successful journalists at the NBC when they decided to quit and start their own company – The Skimm. The Skimm is a newsletter that everyone loves receiving on a daily basis, and this is what the actual service has to offer – carefully selected and dissected news for the professionals that need their information short and straight to the point. This idea turned out to be extremely popular, since until today The Skimm managed to get more than fourteen million dollars in funding.
The aforementioned leaders should serve as an inspiration to women all across the globe. They should help them realize that the contemporary world of commerce and startup heavily depends on brave and professional women ready to face the crowd with the smile and handle business.
