‘Dear Female Founder’ is a brilliant book compiled by TLA WiT advocate, Lu Li. It contains 66 letters of advice to the next generation of female entrepreneurs.

The book itself is divided into three sections or chapters, themed respectively as start, build and reflect. “The contributors offer inspiration but also some very practical pieces of advice,” says Lu Li. “Inspiration is great, but actually doing something is the most difficult bit.”

Li hopes her book will encourage fledgling entrepreneurs to seek advice, and to believe in their own abilities. The startup world is fraught with pitfalls and it’s easy to become discouraged after the first fall. But, Li adds, “know that there are many others on the same journey who can help you overcome virtually any challenge.

“Find your support network and don’t be afraid to ask for help.”

When people think of top entrepreneurs, they typically think of Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk. But what about the women who have achieved great things?

We decided something had to be done about this and selected 66 trailblazing female entrepreneurs from around the world to be put into the spotlight. Some of them you will know from the media, while others you might have never heard of.

It might surprise you to hear that they have generated more than $1 billion in revenue.  

“Dear Female Founder” is a unique book based on one simple question:

If successful female entrepreneurs and investors wrote a letter of advice to the next generation of female entrepreneurs – what would they write about?

In the book, you will find invaluable insights from these 66 inspirational women sharing business advice they wished someone had told them when they started out.
