Key takeaways

All the three speakers shared a strong will to achieve and a great vision for their companies. Despite roadblocks, they continue to keep moving forward. Three important learnings that the panelists had learnt with their experience is:


1. Have a very strong support system. Be it professors, family, or friends.

2. Don’t hesitate to ask for help because it provides a new perspective.

3. Have a mentor with whom you can discuss your professional life. No matter how far you advance in your career, always have a reliable mentor for constant guidance.

As successful businesswomen, their mantra is to keep going and “if you want to get things done, get it done.”
