We work with businesses to help them scale efficiently and integrate diversity and inclusion in their business models.
A GENDER LENS ADVISORY FIRM
We advise companies on advancing gender diversity & inclusion within their organizations and supply chains and on integrating gender and climate risks throughout their business models.
WHO WE ARE
Connecting Founders Pte Ltd. is a woman-owned advisory firm that operates at the crossroads of gender and finance. We help funders incorporate a gender lens in their business models and design strategies and financial solutions that work better for women.
Since 2015, Connecting Founders has been working to help women business owners scale and get better access to finance, networks, and skills. Beginning as a platform to offer networking and mentoring opportunities to women entrepreneurs, we later added an advisory arm to support women structure tailored funding plans and match them with like-minded capital.
After working with over 50 women-led companies, Connecting Founders is now leveraging this unique experience to advice financial institutions and international institutional funders design programs, products, and services that work better for women business owners and integrate both a gender and climate lens.
Registered as a limited liability corporation in Singapore, we operate across Southeast Asia and the Pacific.
