Raising The Funding Bar To Get Women Funded Faster

Next Chapter has launched our podcast, Raise the Bar. The podcast features news related to female founders, first-hand accounts from founders, investors, lawyers and other key players in the ecosystem, advice from our experts-in-residence, and alternative pitches that showcase our platform members.

We will talk about how to fix the broken funding system to help more women succeed and how women can battle through the current system to access capital and scale their businesses.


Rithika Gupta, the founder of Ollie, a Singapore based retail brand that helps you better harness the power of essential oils. Rithika shares learning about essential oils through her family’s wholesale business , FP Aromatics Singapore, and how she then launched Ollie as a direct to consumer product business and the differences that she has experienced between these two business models. She also shares the benefits of starting in Singapore and how she is focused on Ollie being innovative in an existing industry segment.

As a member of Next Chapter’s Capital Club programme, an exclusive programme for women business leaders ready to fundraise, we are pleased to be sharing Rithika’s journey as a founder and her plans for Ollie.
