"The difficulty that women have today is that we are often not in a network ... Entrepreneurship in itself is very difficult, it can be very lonely. If you find people you can bond with or understand you, you can get help and that makes a difference." - Chew Gek Khim, executive chairman of both Tecity Group and the real estate and resources-based Straits Trading Company.

TWELVE women entrepreneurs were honoured at the Women Entrepreneur Awards (WEA) on July 9. The highest honour - the Supernova Award - went to Chew Gek Khim, executive chairman of both Tecity Group and the real estate and resources-based Straits Trading Company.
