The A Team
Sharmadean reid, founder
"When I started my business I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing. I’ve learnt a lot in the past year as I started to think about turning WAH into something serious and figuring what's going to bring back the best returns. I want to help girls understand that if they have an idea for a project it could be a global one. Say ‘I want to be a florist, okay I’m going to start a flower shop’ but actually you could do all the flowers for hotels around the world and turn a business with £20,000 profit into £2 million profit.
I didn’t have that way of thinking… I don’t think that it’s 'you’re good at it or you're not', I feel like it’s something that could be taught. Most girls are capable of doing it but they just don’t know it. FutureGirlCorp is about bringing those hard, business skills to this female audience. I want to get girls thinking about flipping their businesses on the head."
Amy Thomson, Cofounder
"FutureGirlCorp is about inspiring and supporting our future leaders. In 2017 4.4% of CEO positions are held by women, this won't be changed by quotas, this will be changed by empowering every girl and woman to strive for their goals and career visions. I am a big believer in opening up conversations around issues and challenges, in order to solve them. I love a good chat, but especially one with list of actions and solutions at the end.
More can be done to give the knowledge and confidence to girls, in order for them to achieve their full career or business potential. We just have to start the conversations and deliver actionable solutions."
Tabitha GoldStauB, Cofounder
"Studies show female founders make up on average 20% of startups and receive only 5% of the funding. However, it's reported that Fortune 500 with a highest representation of women on their senior management teams had a 35-percent higher return on equity.
The disparity here is significant and I am passionate about what we are doing at Future Girl Corp because we have a chance to change this. By supporting female founders and enabling them to reach their true potential we can unlock productivity in the UK and unleash some awesome females with brilliant products that benefits all."
pia stanchina, Cofounder
"I experienced first hand that passion, technical expertise and thought leadership are not enough to create a viable business or earn a good living. However, I'm also living proof that the skills, frameworks and network necessary for success can be acquired and developed.
By physically bringing women together in an educational, entertaining and empowering environment, FutureGirlCorp can help close the gaps - in equal pay, c-level and board representation, financial literacy and business funding. By making our content digitally available, we can scale our impact by empowering ambitious women globally. It's time and finally, we have all the tools. Let's do this!"
