Find guidance and funding for your start-up with Woomentum.
Founded in 2014, Woomentum is a global online community for female entrepreneurs and professionals to connect, share their expertise and raise funds. Woomentum’s two main initiatives are Woomentum.com, a Q&A platform designed for women entrepreneurs to share knowledge and mentorship, and Woomentum.Fund a rewards-based crowdfunding platform focused on businesses led by women.
Woomentum was founded by Mouna Aouri.
Mouna did her graduate studies in civil Engineering and worked in Japan for seven years. During those years, Mouna worked for international engineering firms in Tokyo. After gaining extensive experience in engineering, marketing and business development, Mouna ran her own consultancy company for five years. She consulted engineering and technology firms on the design and implementation of infrastructure projects in North Africa.
Mouna relocated to Singapore in 2011 and now a mother of two daughters. Mouna is passionate about entrepreneurship, engineering and technology. Seeing more women overcome their challenges and succeed in these fields and in business were her drivers to founding Woomentum.
And now we are very excited to have Mouna's Woomentum partnering with us. As her platforms offer much needed opportunities for funding and support to women.
Business coaching with Malini at Trailblazing Mums.
Trailblazing Mums, set up by Malini Thakerar, provides business coaching services to Mums who are ready to take the leap and want to create and grow their own flexible businesses around family. Malini is passionate about supporting Trailblazing Mums who are ambitious, smart and passionate with a dream of running their own purpose-driven business but who value the importance of creating balance in their work and life to realise their true potential. She believes that Mums can “have it all” – you just need to know what you want to create and how to create it.

A clear plan of action for getting your business started and launched, including having a plan to quit your day job.

How to market your business effectively to start building a community and getting those all important first few paying clients/customers.
Believing in yourself and having the confidence to take action without fear
Trailblazing Mums was in part formed from Malini’s personal experience after becoming a Mum. “After my son was born, I felt like I had lost my identity. I had suddenly gone from being an ambitious and successful career-driven woman to a stay-at-home mum changing nappies and speaking baby lingo! I needed something more and I feared that staying “out of the game” for too long would be detrimental for me. However, my priorities completely changed when I became a Mum and I knew I didn’t want to go back to working in a full time corporate job – I wanted the best of both worlds, to be able to do meaningful work and spend time with my family”.
Prior to becoming a Mum, Malini worked in the corporate world for 10 years as a Strategy & Change Consultant for a top tier management consulting firm. Her extensive business experience of consulting for large firms and working with small businesses and entrepreneurs, combined with her own personal journey as a Mum, is what enables her to successfully coach Mums to launch and grow a flexible business around family.
If you are interested in getting in touch with Malini, let us know or you can contact her directly here and mention that you heard about her from us.
