10 Singapore women entrepreneurs who are in a league of their own

Asia One | By Balvinder Sandhu | Friday, 8 March 2019

Power women - these women have torn down barriers, broken glass ceilings and pushed boundaries, subsequently opening doors and creating opportunities for more women in their industries.

Some have even fallen and gotten back up again - successfully. So there's no better time than International Women's Day to celebrate these admirable superwomen who are coming up tops in their fields.

We're inspired by them and we hope you are too.

“After spending more than a decade on Wall Street, where she developed large-scale trading, risk management and data analytics systems, Ayesha is now one of the leading female entrepreneurs in Singapore. She co-founded Addo AI, an artificial intelligence solutions firm, which counts Singtel and SMRT as its clients.

Impressively, Addo AI was featured in Forbes magazine in 2017 as one of four leading artificial intelligence companies in Asia and Ayesha was named one of South-east Asia's groundbreaking female entrepreneurs by the same magazine a year later.

Born in Lahore, Pakistan, Ayesha received a scholarship to Harvard in the United States and later lived in New York. She moved to Singapore in 2012 with her husband and they have since become Singapore citizens (so we're claiming them as our own). Ayesha also founded 21C Girls, a charity that delivers free coding and artificial intelligence classes to girls in Singapore.After spending more than a decade on Wall Street, where she developed large-scale trading, risk management and data analytics systems, Ayesha is now one of the leading female entrepreneurs in Singapore.
