After leaving the corporate world for entrepreneurship,Samantha King realized that there was a need for a community of female entrepreneurs to educate, support, and empower those as they embarked on their entrepreneurship journeys. Founding #SmallBusinessThatRocks Fempire Builders, Samantha aims to educate, support, and empower female entrepreneurs as they work to achieve their goals.
What was once considered strictly a ‘man’s domain’, entrepreneurship in women has exploded in levels not seen since the 90s. There are now more self-employed women than ever before. While the reasons for this explosion are societal, cultural, and individual, there is a trend emerging of professionals finding the regular 9-5 grind incompatible with their goals for family, success, and personal well-being. What many would call, “a broken system”, our current societal construct has not adapted to the integral role of women actively engaging in business. Fempire Builders has been busy aiming to fix that.
