The Rise of On The Rise

In Malaysia, women entrepreneurs are carving a significant niche, accounting for around 20% of the more than 650,000 entrepreneurs in the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector. Despite their increasing influence on the economic landscape, these women often encounter distinct challenges, especially in accessing crucial funding and financial resources. This gap highlights the urgent need for targeted initiatives that support and empower female business leaders.

To address these obstacles, the community group On The Rise is hosting the Rise Summit, an event specifically focused on enhancing financial literacy, fostering connections with funding partners, and exploring growth strategies for female founders and leaders. The Summit aims to be a transformative platform, offering masterclasses, workshops, and opportunities for direct engagement with investors.

Kate Sarginson, the Founder of On The Rise, underscores the importance of the Rise Summit, emphasising its role in shaping the future of women entrepreneurship in Malaysia and beyond. This event not only aims to level the playing field but also strives to empower women entrepreneurs through education, networking, and direct support, making it an essential milestone for female empowerment in business.
