Attentional all mamas looking to increase their financial know-how, and pass some of that knowledge on to their own daughters. Sophia is an exciting new learning platform in Asia providing much-needed financial education for women to increase diversity and inclusion in early-age investing.
Some statistics show that a low percentage of women discuss saving, investing, and planning for retirement amongst their social circles. Other statistics show that women make about half as much money as men. Sophia’s co-founders created the company in order to provide the education to turn some of these statistics around and increase the capital of women.
Sophia membership starts at US$75 per year for access that includes monthly live events on different financial topics, a discount on courses, access to a community of female game-changers, and the introductory webinar.
Sophia offers various courses such as The New Investor Essentials (US$195, digital), covering the pros and cons of early-stage investing, how to maximize returns, key investing steps, and how to assess a pitch presentation. It includes 22 lessons and 2 hours of video content.
Other upcoming courses include The New Investor Essentials, an in-person course available in March in both Hong Kong and Singapore.
It's women inspiring, educating, and ultimately helping women - what could be better?!
This is a great activity for moms and daughters who are looking to take a bit of control over their financial lives.
