Entrepreneurial Women with Purpose was founded on the knowledge that all across New Zealand, successful, diverse, interesting, thought-provoking, status-quo challenging women, who were living and breathing many life roles on any given day, had created incredible businesses focused on so much more than just acquiring profit.
We believe that through entrepreneurial education, empowerment, and investment that is three dimensional, businesses from all over New Zealand can harness growth that has a positive social and environmental impact. Businesses have incredible power and by injecting that power with love, innovation, and creativity we together can solve some of the world’s greatest challenges to ensure our children’s futures are just as light, fun, and full of love as ours have been.
Oprah Winfrey once asked the founder of Whole Foods Market, John Mackey “what love has to do with business” and his response was so profound and succinct and said, “I say LOVE is what connects an organization together.”
