021: Lu Li – Creating the right environment for female entrepreneurs to bloom

In the 21st episode of the Parentpreneur Accelerator Podcast I speak with Lu Li founder of Blooming Founders, a brand new co-working space and member’s club called ‘Blooms’. Blooms is targeted primarily at female entrepreneurs and even provides childcare.

Lu has plenty of experience in supporting 1,000s of female entrepreneurs via her online community, in-person events, weekly e-newsletter and her book, ‘Dear Female Founder’, which collates 66 letters packed with invaluable advice from women entrepreneurs who have made $1billion in revenue.

We discuss the realities, highs and pitfalls for women starting new businesses, what’s out there to facilitate women with starting up, and how Lu has built a massive community and strong network in a rather short period of time.
