Did you know that in 2016 just 2.5% of venture capital funding went to female entrepreneurs? And that globally, women own just 1% of the world’s wealth?
The Future Females mission is to accelerate the success of aspiring and existing female entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs – to provide an environment where females can connect, and access the key resources needed to succeed. We are women that break the mould, think bigger and are working to create a bright future.
Future Females first launched in Cape Town in August 2017 and has already grown to have over 3000 members of the community actively participating to drive our mission globally – with events in South Africa, Germany, and Namibia.
Join the Future Females Facebook group to connect with members and stay up to date with event exclusives, content, giveaways and pictures from the night!

After moving from Cape Town to Johannesburg in 2014, she began a new journey, this time into digital marketing. Co-founding digital agency Hustle Media with her business partner not long afterwards, Cindy’s passion for the digital space continued to grow.
