Founders in SheWorx are women who embody three core values. We call these the AAA Values: Ambition — We set big goals and push ourselves outside of our comfort zone. Action — We work around constraints and always find a way to get things done. Altruism — We give back to our communities and encourage the success of other women.
Meet Serena, one of the many incredible founders attending the upcoming SheWorx100 Summit.
1. What does your company do?
Good Zing is a platform bringing together user-generated and expert remedies, tips & tricks from around the world into one platform, allowing users to have a menu of options to treat themselves of everyday complaints; whilst incorporating advice from a wide range of health experts. Think about it like Yelp, or Product Hunt, but for everyday health tips, from anxiety to acne, to headaches or heartbreak, we've got you covered.
2. What impact are you making? What does this impact look like in 10 years?
We're on a mission to democratise access to everyday health & wellness information. We firmly believe that all health information should be available to everyone, no matter their financial background, their location, or their access to health and alternative health practitioners.
Good Zing launched in late May'17, with over 2200 health tips covering 183 topics with over 170 verified experts. Just over 40% of the health tips on the platform come from qualified experts. This is just the beginning. In 10 years, we aim to be the go-to database of health tips covering more than 1000 common health topics. Through the voting system and user-generated content, the database will cover every type of tip, from home remedies, to what the experts say, to the best products. Good Zing is designed to disrupt the way we access wellness information by demystifying the range of health information available.
3. Why are you excited about the SheWorx100 Summit? What is the best part about being in the SheWorx community?
Last year's inaugural London SheWorx Summit was a fantastic networking experience but it was also really fun! Last year, my business was in a really early stage and so it was incredibly useful to get honest feedback, without any of the usual bullsh**. I am excited to continue those conversations 1 year on. I also met some incredible inspirational founders, whom I am still in touch with and who we help support each other. Being a founder of a startup is relentless and can be lonely. Having the support of a community of like-minded women, not just here in London, but in other cities, a community who you can ask questions, get advice, help with introductions, has really helped both the business and me personally. I was lucky enough to go to one of the New York SheWorx breakfast and was blown away by the community there and what the ventures that the women were working on.
