Singapore Women Entrepreneurs Network (SG-WEN)


About Us

Launched on 21 September 2021, the Singapore Women Entrepreneurs Network (SG-WEN) is a network formed by SBF to coordinate the existing efforts of businesswomen within the community, and to serve as a platform to connect with other women-entrepreneurs associations in Asia-Pacific, particularly ASEAN. 

Our vision is to be the preeminent network of women entrepreneurs in Singapore focused on helping them achieve the fullest potential in their businesses, for the benefit of the communities and economies they serve.

Our mission is to provide a platform where Singapore women entrepreneurs and existing women business networks can unite and collaborate to influence culture and policy, and drive industry change in Singapore and Asia-Pacific, particularly ASEAN.  We will do this by advocating and promoting women business perspectives, facilitating knowledge sharing, fostering business partnerships and growth.

SBF's MAP Initiative

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in unprecedented economic disruption for companies. As companies recover and explore new ways towards growth, SBF has launched the MAP initiative to provide our members with a guided journey for economic recovery and transformation. As a pilot initiative, the MAP initiative accepts applications from SBF members in the Wholesale and Retail Trade sectors.

To benefit more SBF members across various sectors, SBF has also opened up Stage M of the MAP initiative to all sectors. Due to limited capacity, early registration is encouraged for this complimentary stage.

At Stage M, the business owner can select the most preferred online webinar before deciding on the next stage.

Progressively, at Stage A, workshops are more theme-specific and cater to a smaller size of no more than 15 participants per workshop.

Fair Tenancy Industry Committee

On 26 June 2020, key representatives from Singapore’s landlord and tenant communities, together with industry experts, formed the Fair Tenancy Pro Tem Committee in a bid to strengthen collaboration and increase the vibrancy and competitiveness of Singapore’s retail, food & beverage (F&B) and lifestyle sectors. The result is an industry-led Code of Conduct for Leasing of Retail Premises in Singapore ("Code") based on the principles of transparency, reciprocity and sustainability.

On 3 May 2021, the Fair Tenancy Industry Committee (FTIC) was set up to be the custodian of the Code and ensure that it provides guidance to landlords and tenants of qualifying retail premises so that fair and balanced lease negotiations can be achieved. It is represented by both landlords and tenants, as well neutral parties to offer a holistic approach when addressing matters related to retail lease agreements.

A dedicated website for the FTIC has been set up. Please visit ftic.org.sg for more information on the FTIC and the Code of Conduct for Leasing of Retail Premises in Singapore. You may also access the FTIC’s website for filing of joint declaration of deviation, which is now available.

If you have any queries, please direct them to .
