Supporting Female Entrepreneurs

While research has shown that there is very little difference in the skillsets and mindsets of female and male entrepreneurs, the fact remains that in most countries 75% or more of all entrepreneurs are male.

So at SotG, we want to both support existing female entrepreneurs AND lower the barriers to entry so more women can take personal accountability for their careers and start their own businesses, either part or full time.

You can read more about our long term plans in this space here, but in the short term we are starting two new offerings in the fall of 2021:

1) Expert Speakers series – Each week starting in November, we will be hosting an inspiring female entrepreneur or entrepreneur coach from all around the world. These events will be free to join and will be a blend of webinars, interviews, Q&A sessions, and the occasional panel discussion. Please check back to the list of dates on the right of this page for updates.

2) We will be offering one or more Peer Advisory Sprint Sessions specifically for female entrepreneurs. SotG Peer Advisory Sprint Sessions:

     a) Run for 4-5 weeks, with a 90-120 minute session each week

     b) Are based on a specific theme, with a specific sub-topic each session

     c) Make use of the peer support mechanisms, but with each session facilitated by

          an expert in that particular sub-topic

There will be a charge for these sessions, to pay the facilitators with the surplus being used to fund our non-profit efforts. Stay tuned for more details on the themes we will be offering and signup dates.

  • Early Nov First Speaker Series event
  • Coming soon Themes for Peer Advisory Sprint Sessions and signup announcements
  • Also of interest  In honor of Mental Health month, we will also be offering  a special Peer Advisory Sprint Session on the theme of Women’s Mental Health – details to be announced soon, but this will be open to entrepreneurs and non-entrepreneurs alike

SotG Foundation Overview

The World Spirit of the Game Foundation was formed to help individuals and organizations take Personal Accountability for their Impact on the world.

Our organization has spread to 30+ countries so far just in 2021 and there are 4 main Pillars of the organization, with each individual or organizational member choosing for themselves how many of these areas they wish to contribute to.

1) Developing SotG as the world’s first “crowd-sourced” life philosophy which both provides individuals with an internal framework for choosing a different definition of winning and as a Social Movement which provides the external framework that helps like minded individuals and organizations around the world maximize their positive impact on society.

2) An Impact Coaching division to help raise funds for the non-profit work, and which now has a wide range of offerings for universities, as well as for corporations, SMEs, and start-ups.

3) Typical NGO work which includes applying for grants on Youth Leadership, Women’s Empowerment, and Entrepreneurial support, among others, as well as organizing global initiatives and supporting other NGOs

4) A global Impact Network of “disruptors of dysfunctional systems” that consists of individuals and organizations from the worlds of non-profit, social enterprise, for profit, academia and government.

Here is a full video overview of these 4 pillars as well as a deeper explanation of the long term goals of the organization/movement. ——————————————>>>
