Michelle is a born and raised Vancouverite - medical science student turned social entrepreneur. She co-founded FLIK, a female-focused apprenticeship portal connecting female founders/leaders to ambitious female students to facilitate game-changing relationships that lift communities of womxn. Michelle has always had a passion for impact and discovered her niche at the intersection of technology and social entrepreneurship after she was selected to Next 36, Canada's premier accelerator for young entrepreneurs! In sharing her vision for FLIK as well as the personal story behind discovering her journey, Michelle hopes to incite the next generation to create meaningful change. Michelle’s vision is to accelerate womxn-led ventures globally.

In today’s episode, Michelle shares:

  • How she broke away from the traditional barriers as a child of a first gen immigrant Canadian family and her transition from being a medical science student to a social tech entrepreneur
  • How she navigated the tech space as a female entrepreneur and built her company to 3400+ users in 38+ countries in under 6 months.
  • Busting through imposter syndrome in business to build your vision.

Michelle has had the honour of speaking at universities and spaces across North America sharing her thoughts on entrepreneurship, womxn empowerment, diversity and inclusion, and breaking down barriers. She now serves on the alumni advisory council of League of Innovators where she works to accelerate more Canadian youth entrepreneurs. Michelle’s message today is incredibly empowering for all womxn. She pushed through adversity to build an incredible empire and space that supports and empowers Womxn in THEIR visions worldwide.
