5 Questions for…Claudia Chan, Entrepreneur and Founder of S.H.E. Summit

We love seeing brilliant women do inspiring things, which is why we can’t get enough of Claudia Chan and her site, The online hub is designed to be a resource for women to empower them and help counteract any negative forces that might hold them back in their personal and professional lives. “Women who expose themselves to empowerment messages are more likely to transform our culture for the betterment of the world,” Chan says. With over 100 exclusive interviews archived on the site and the first ever S.H.E. Summit Week taking place later this month (which Chan is, of course, running), it’s easy to see why her star is on the rise. We asked her to share the up-and-coming women entrepreneurs she has her eye on, her best advice, and more.

As I am about to launch a massive “women’s week” of events called S.H.E. Summit Week in NYC— featuring 35 experiences designed for, by and about women—I go back to this mantra to keep fear at bay and even laugh it in the face if I have to.
