  • Time to Stand Up, Shepreneurs!

     

    8 March is a significant date for women around the globe. International Women’s Day is a day dedicated to championing women’s achievements and causes to accelerate gender balance. This year’s theme is #BalanceforBetter, a call to action for accelerating equality in business, politics, media coverage and wealth.

    Equality in having fun is as important as well!

    As the voices on equality grow even louder, so are the voices for greater participation of women in entrepreneurship! Given that women make up about half of the global population with longer life expectancy than men, it makes perfect sense to tap into the talent of women and hone it for obvious economic and societal benefits.

    The idea that women are only limited to the boundaries of kitchen and house chores has long faded into obscurity and has been relegated to jokes and memes. Instead, women entrepreneurship is progressively being regarded as one of the key drivers of economic growth and sustainable development.

    In fact, the word ‘shepreneur’ has been making its rounds as a buzzword on the internet. It’s only fitting to give more weight to this noun so that it can be a rallying flag for aspiring women entrepreneurs!

    Another reason to be a shepreneur - what better way to leave a personal stamp in the progress for equality than taking charge of your destiny with your personal branding?

    Opportunities for Entrepreneurship Mentoring and Financing in Malaysia

    In Malaysia, opportunities to partake in women entrepreneurship programs and gaining access to financial aid are hardly scarce. You just have to know where to look! Here are a few programs that are offered by government agencies and private institutions to support your entrepreneurial journey:

    1. Women Entrepreneur Financing Programme (WEP – LEAP)

    This entrepreneur development programme from SME Bank is designed for new and existing entrepreneurs looking to turn their ideas into a sustainable and bankable business plan. It is open to all Malaysians.

     2. Women of Will

    Women of Will is a non-profit organization for underprivileged women. It offers financial and mentoring support in initiating and sustaining a small business. The organization has a keen interest in working with women under the B40 category.

     3. DanaNita

    With a financing opportunity of up to RM50,000, this MARA-backed funding for women entrepreneur is also accessible to online business-enthusiasts.

     4. Housewives Enhancement and Reactivate Talent Scheme (HEARTS)

    A training program for housewives that comes under the purview of the Human Resources Development Fund, this program will equip housewives with the necessary skills to participate in the workforce or run their own business from home.
