Business. Friendships. Funds.

Hello there, I’m Niki. I started BFFs as a way to share the research I’m uncovering around Asia’s female-owned businesses, friendships and funds.

As an active participant in online female-focused communities, I noticed that they are mostly originating in places such as the US, UK, Europe and Australia.

Meanwhile, opportunities for funds, mentorship, and access are not as readily available for those of us here in Asia.
