BWNASIA was created by Michelle Mcfarlane in May of 2014 essentially to be part of a network group that offers members support, encouragement, to gain ideas from those who have done the hard yards and had the experience in setting up a business in Singapore.
Working from home alone can be very challenging, in most cases running a small business you need to be every position you can think of from market analyst and business development to accounts and financing. For most of us we are also managing around our family’s busy lifestyle.
From starting the business women network on facebook then hosting monthly meetings, the network has grown much larger than expected with now over 2000 members and growing daily. Many women within the network have supported each other, used each other’s services, gained friendships and working in collaboration.
BWN is all about supporting women in business every step of the way, no matter the challenges knowing the women of the network are not alone. Having someone to answer questions, give encouragement, celebrate, and brainstorm with is valuable to any business.
BWN would like to express our deepest gratitude to Creabuena Graphic Design founder Petra Pirinen who created the Business Women Network Logo. Her work was voted by the members to create our new image. To see more of Petra's work click on her logo for more information.
