Happy International Women’s Day to all of our super star female friends!
As we celebrate all the achievements made by women in todays every-changing world, we want to congratulate those who have made a difference and share many messages of love, strength and smiles around the globe to honour women.
For those who may not know, The Volte was started by two sets of sisters with one great idea that was driven by their dedication and passion for this bomb idea. Now looking at how far the company has come, we are so very proud of everything they have achieved and cannot wait to see where it goes in the future! As well as all of this, we love that they are setting such an example and standard for women in business.
Being a startup company ourselves, we look up to those who have successfully created an empire of their own with their motivation and love for their idea. One who is an absolute stand-out as we use her site a lot (like A LOT!) is the inspiring Melanie Perkins, who created canva.com and became an entrepreneur at 19 years of age while studying at a university in Perth. There is so much hard work that goes into building a company and Melanie did it so young and so well that we really admire her story. She found a gap in the market where people wanted a simple way to create graphics and visuals that everyone can use that still looked professional and with perseverance and determination made it happen.
Another story worth sharing is Ally Watson, who was listed on SMH Australia’s Top 9 Most Influential Female Entrepreneurs of 2017 for breaking barriers in a normally male dominant sector. Forming female focused tech events allows women to feel comfortable in sharing their knowledge of the coding industry and has become a great addition in the development and culture in coding.
It is so fulfilling to see how much the standards and capabilities of women have changed, we are fortunate that our generations gone have set such a standard for us that we are now able to work higher, be taken seriously and have authority, all that we must do now is keep the momentum going so that our daughters and their daughters live in a better and more equal world.
