Do you have a business challenge which an hour with an experienced mentor could help resolve, or just a question that’ll take moments for someone with that experience to answer? 

Sistr has been created to enable women to impart wisdom, and offer advice, to other women – a dedicated platform to connect, share and learn from one another.

On Sistr, professionals gain access to a network of qualified female experts covering a whole range of industries and skills, to help them grow their business.

Sistrs can chat with other Sistrs via the platform on a variety of business topics, find out about and attend a carefully curated events schedule and choose to work together beyond the platform, hand-picking from a network of Sistrs to create their own advisory board and build out a team of elite female professionals to move their business forward.

Qualified in their respective fields with proven evidence-based experience, Sistrs can chat, participate in forum discussions or commit to mentoring for just one hour per month which they do so with no expectations in return.  However, they’re aware that their consultancy can lead to forming beneficial relationships beyond the initial hour.

Sistr is from the camp of the female empowerment brand Killing Kittens and its founder, Emma Sayle. Sayles passion for championing women in business has led the drive to launch the platform and lead the way in the sector.

Why Sistr?

  • There are six million businesses in Britain, and only one fifth are run by women, and there are twice as many male entrepreneurs as females despite there being one million more women in the UK
  • Statistics show that women make up only a third of all entrepreneurs in the UK. Of the launch of Sistr, Sayle says “Sistr aims to demystify why women are so underestimated in UK business – we need to understand, and tackle, the barriers and reasons as to why this is – more can be done to support women in enterprise.”
  • Women to women empowerment is having its moment, right now, female mentoring supports women overcome a lack of confidence in the business place and for the first time removes the need to compete with one another for limited resources
  • Women-led businesses achieve far lower levels of funding, with male entrepreneurs 86 per cent more likely to be venture-capital funded, and 56 per cent more likely to secure angel investment.

Sistr cultivates trust, authenticity, and real knowledge-sharing between its female users in a motivating way, blending online efficiency with offline personability. By matching Sistrs in need with Sistrs who can help online then meeting up in person for just one hour a month, you could help another woman’s professional fortunes – and male-dominated business culture – for good.
