The Super Women Congress


It is notoriously hard being a #girlboss, but just remember: you aren't in this alone. As we salute small business women owners everywhere on International Women's Day, Chillax Market is proud to launch The Super Women Congress, a twice-yearly forum that combines community support, business advice, and a dash of good fun within the women entrepreneur circle.

Join five successful and influential Singapore-based #girlbosses at our inaugural session as they discuss navigating entrepreneurship as women, daughters, and mothers. Primed with intimate insights on how to run a successful business while juggling commitments outside of work, our panelists will reveal their tips and tricks on everything from fundraising and marketing to the ins and outs of an e-commerce business and playing the media minefield.

Forget your run-of-the-mill networking sessions: each ticket not only includes one glass of champagne and finger food for the night, but an exclusive 10% off on all Chillax Market merchandise for that night only. Mingle with like-minded fearless females and be inspired to push your business to the next level.
