In this episode of the Kobestarr Digital Podcast I talk to Lu Li of Blooming Founders.
She is a Chinese born, German entrepreneur who now lives in London! Lu initially worked for large companies in management consulting and FMCG. She started two businesses one in Zurich and then one in London shortly after moving here a couple years.
We talk about feeling unsatisfied in her initial jobs despite them being the types of “good jobs” that all of our parents would love us to have. This dissatisfaction lead to the starting of her entrepreneurial career that began with two companies that unfortunately or maybe fortunately no longer exist. This brings us to Blooming Founders which promotes female entrepreneurs via events, programs and an community building. If you’re a lady or know a lady who is thinking of starting your own company please do get in contact with them
Lu has compiled an impressive list of 66 female founders from all across the globe who have contributed to her book “Dear Female Founder”. Each chapter is a letter from one of the contributors that starts with the words “Dear Female Founder…” targeted at a younger self or other young women with the aim of imparting their experiences and knowledge.
The book is of course for us men too! Everyone needs to be part of the conversation here.
Dear Female founder comes out in the middle of September so in the meantime please do sign up to her mailing list on the Blooming Founders website
Thanks everybody for listening!
