Start PowerfulBusinessWomen’s networking chapters all over the world. Which will be hosted by the local partners of our network.
To help and empower business women all over the world to grow their business to the next level, so they can make more impact in the world.
Women are more and more to be seen in politics. Due to quotas or other matters. In business, we see that every year more and more women start a business. In my country, at the moment this is 31 %, which is good. However, their companies remain too small and because of that they have little influence and cannot make a lot of impact.
There are some obvious reasons for this.
This network is not just any network for business-women, where you go once a month and meet each other to network and hope to do some business and chat a bit.
This is a network where strong business women meet, connect, learn and do business together.
This is an international network where women from all over the world will be able to meet live and connect. Or meet virtually online.
This is a network where you can learn from other business women because they want to share and give. This is a network of Powerful Business Women!
My name is Tineke Rensen. I have been a business owner for 29 years (2018). Before I became a business mentor/accelerator I had my own outdoor & survival, travel agency. We were specialized in outdoor activities, such as rafting, climbing, kayaking and more. This business operated in various European countries. I sold it because I wanted to develop myself in a totally new arena.
I am a former sports athlete and have been doing sports as long as I can remember.
This resulted in achieving the title of national champion in whitewater kayaking in The Netherlands.
I also joined the national Ski-team.
As an entrepreneur, I have a lot of international experience.
I now have international clients and speak internationally. With my former business, we worked in 4 different countries at the same time, during peak season. With a team of 25 we made sure that every visitor had a safe survival experience during their holiday.
I speak fluent English and German, and reasonable French and Italian. I transformed myself from a woman doing business as most men do to a business owner using her female strengths and qualities in harmony with the male way of doing business.
It has always been my passion to help and grow people in any kind or form and help them to go beyond their limitations. (Before we did this with the sports we taught, and now with business mentoring and bringing business-women together).
When I was a young business owner, I joined mixed business clubs, because there were no women’s clubs. In these clubs, I met mostly men. Years later when I was elected as the best female business owner of my county I was invited to a women’s business club who had chapters in many parts of my country. Finally, I thought, “now I will meet like-mined business women”. I liked it a lot, but I often got disappointed, because we talked and had fun, but did not do much business together. Their businesses were too small to be my clients. So, I left this club.
Many female business clubs invited me as a speaker. My aim was to find a good club where I would find likeminded women. I could not find one women’s network that matched my needs and desires. Often, I was the one with a lot of experience, ambition, and knowledge. I was sharing my knowledge and helping other women, as women naturally do. But it was a one-way direction for me. I gained nothing of it, except for having fun. That’s why I decided to start with a totally new concept for a business women’s network where we facilitate knowledge and doing business together. Only serious business women with a lot of experience are allowed.
The members are highly qualified business owners. Most often they have the ambition to do business internationally or do so already.
