Why we were determined to start FxF.
Launched in October 2021, Female x Finance is the first platform for women in finance, by women in finance. During our attempt to break into finance, we noticed that there were still several bumps in the road. While studying you learn a lot about finance. But, they do not teach you about the several financial sectors, companies, career opportunities, and the career path that will suit you best.
Most of the time, you’ll get in touch with companies from your own direct network and get informed and inspired by people closest to you. When you only see men dominating the field, it’s challenging to see yourself between them. “You can’t be it, if you can’t see it”, right? Nevertheless, we both made it in the financial sector and ended up doing several internships. Unfortunately, we saw a huge outflow of women, and their complications to stay into finance.
