Our Female Collective is made up of women who are changing up the creative scene in Singapore. There’s Nadia Rahmat, who was spotted on Instagram and became a Marc Jacobs model; Marie Soh, who recently launched her own makeup line of matte lipsticks; and Charlotte Chen, the founder of an agency that links major brands with social media influencers.

The upcoming Crib Summit also celebrates women entrepreneurs who aren’t afraid to take risks and make an impact. Running from March 11 to 12 at the scenic Capella Hotel (above) in Sentosa, the event aims to serve as a networking platform for women who are involved in and want to make a positive impact on society.

It’s organised by Crib, a non-profit social enteprise that wants to empower women to be successful entrepreneurs that was founded by a power posse comprising Elaine Kim (doctor and founder of Trinity Gallery), Tjin Lee (managing director of a PR and marketing firm and also the brains behind Singapore Fashion Week), Marilyn Lum (director of an investment firm) and Mei Chee (regional head of product marketing at a global tech company).

Doctor and entrepreneur Elaine Kim is one of four founders of Crib. She also recently co-founded Trehaus Co-work, a co-working space for parents and children, with Tjin Lee.

The Crib Summit is split into two components: A symposium and workshop sessions. Amongst its roster of illustrious speakers, who will be touching on topics such as business, entrepreneurship and women’s leadership during the symposium: HRH Dr. Princess Nisreen El-Hashemite, the founder of the World Women’s Health and Development Forum; Tingjun Zhang, executive director of humanitarian aid group Mercy Relief; and Claire Chiang, co-founder of Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts.

Workshops, meanwhile, will take up two half-days during the Summit, and are intended to be practical sessions for attendees, whether through skills-building or in-depth talks from experts in their respective fields. If you’re a budding entrepreneur or have been entertaining thoughts of setting up your own brand or company, this sounds like a great way to spend a weekend.
