//femaledev Empowering Young Female Leaders with Technology

April 28, 2015

On Kartini's day, I was invited by Yansen to share my entrepreneurship journey at //femaledev summit. Nowadays, I prefer to do a talkshow or panel than a full presentation with slides and everything. It's usually more fun and less preparation on my side. I was on the session with Putri Tanjung, founder of Creativepreneur and a professional gamer Monica Caroline, founder of Nixia Gamer. So it was basically about the creative industry and how technology empowered us.

I received a lot of questions from students and aspiring entrepreneurs after the session as well as from the media. It was uplifting to know there are so many young female out there dreaming big and trying to design their own life. I used to think that it's better to work first before building your own business but now I believe that it's better to start as young as possible! 

Start young where you have no body depend on you financially and you don't have to worry about mortgage and pension fund so you can afford some mistakes. Start young where your body is still at its prime so you can work till the wee hours and still look like you are fully charged the next morning. Start young where you still have crazy ideas and believe that there's no limit. 

Do you know that Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Sergey & Larry founded their companies when they were 20 something? So what are you waiting for, right? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.   

Anyway, I was asked what I want Female Daily to be in the next 5 years? I told the audience that by then, I hope all smartphones own by Indonesian women will have Female Daily apps on it. I don't know what the numbers will be, some 100 million something? But wouldn't it be awesome that something you build become a big part of people's daily life? I know it's a tall order but let's just do our best and let Allah do the rest :)
