New age women entrepreneurs: How they are levelling the playing field.
"So often people work hard at the wrong thing. Working on the right thing is probably more important than working hard." - Caterina Fake (Co-founder, Flickr)
This 10th March, we celebrate local enterprise heroines in conjunction with International Women’s Day (8th March 2015). From upcycled wearable to professional services match-makers and also a talent house of independent Malaysian designers, meet the new age women entrepreneurs who are creating a buzz with their enterprises.
