Founder & CEO, GirlBoss NZ
Forbes 30 under 30
Pacific Entrepreneur of the Year
Alexia is the CEO of GirlBoss NZ - the school project which has grown to become NZ's largest organisation for young women. Founded when Alexia was just 16, GirlBoss now has 13,500 members. Alexia’s mission is to get women to the table - the boardroom table that is, and she believes the decisions made while young are crucial in paving the way. She has flown with NASA and is the youngest person to represent New Zealand at the United Nations in New York.
Alexia's passion for women in Finance and Technology, is why she was named Emerging Alumni of the Year by The Young Enterprise Scheme, Pacific Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and a Forbes 30 under 30 in 2021.
Founder, Girls That Invest
Research shows that women are better investors than our male counterparts, yet we are still less likely to invest!
'Girls That Invest' founder, Simran Kaur, is here to change this once and for all. Tackling the oft-taboo topic of money and investments with panache, humour and hard-hitting facts, Girls That Invest, has 160,000+ Instagram followers and is rated NZ's #1 business podcast.
Simran shows us how simple actions taken now can help you to build and sustain wealth, for generations to come.
Founder, Invest with Queenie
Tik Tok Sensation, Queenie Tan is an absolute force when it comes to Finance & Investing.
Her personal finance journey started when she moved out of home as a teenager and was earning just $400 per week. She could barely afford to pay her bills and groceries each week. Fast forward only a few years later, and Queenie has just bought her own home, has investments, has a 6 figure income and is on her journey to reach financial freedom.
"Investing and financial literacy isn't only for the rich - it's how people become rich. When you're young, even if you don't have a lot of money to start with, you have time on your side. Nowadays, investing is way more accessible. We can start with $5!"
Winner, The Apprentice
As a self-described "manifesting machine" this total GirlBoss is the winner of The Apprentice NZ.
Vanessa (Ness) has poured her creative genius into creating a business which allows her to make money from her love for lux.
She is the Queen of event styling and the founder of - OMGNESS - a styling and events business specialising in boujee parties.
Ness proves that when you play to your strengths, you can have it all.

Monika, 17, Auckland
This opportunity has provided me with skills and knowledge that will greatly benefit me in the long run. It has motivated me to not only pursue my future career but also to commit and achieve whatever I put my mind to, and to do everything with a purpose. I am truly grateful to have been selected for this programme.
Emma, 18, Christchurch
I loved every second of it because it pushed me to think inwardly and also about the world around me and what needs changing. The energy that I have felt as well as the empowerment that has come from being a part of this amazing opportunity is overwhelming and inspiring. It is one of the best things I have done.
Real feedback from kiwi women like you!
“Before this programme, I wanted to start my own small business, and eventually change the world in my own little way, but had no idea where to begin and had no confidence to do so. It is honestly difficult to describe in words how much GirlBoss has changed my life. I feel so much more confident than ever before, and I can not only feel the change, but I can see it too!
I can truly believe that I have the power to make all my dreams come true now!
Thank you, honestly, it was perfect!!”
