Lu Li | Press for Progress #IWD | 009

In celebration of International Women's Day I sat down with the inspiring Lu. She’s the founder of Blooming Founders, a network which exists to support and empower female entrepreneurs. More recently, Lu has launched Blooms London, a female focused co-working space in the heart of London (with a creche and free biscuits!).

I chose Lu for this episode because herself and her work totally embodies the heart of International Women's Day, which this year is to ‘Press for Progress’. Whether you’re a woman or not, this is an episode you want to tune in for!

She talked more about her story into business, the common barriers she sees female entrepreneurs facing and the part we can play to press for progress in the workplace. It’s a good one!


If you’re looking for a flexible (and affordable!) co-working space in London, I cannot recommend Blooms enough. I’ve seen a lot of co-working spaces but this one blew me away. Not only is it a gorgeous space, but as I walked in it felt just the right mix of cosy, professional and calm.

If you’re a working mum, they have a creche and if you’re just looking to pop in and out, there’s a ton of membership plans to suit every need. Check it out HERE.

To learn more about Blooming Founders and connect with the events and resources they provide for women in business, click HERE. As we mentioned in the episode, you can join their community of 2500+ female entrepreneurs HERE, where you’ll find support, feedback and collaboration.

As always, thank you so much for listening to todays episode! If we haven’t connected yet, I’d love to hear from you over on Instagram.
