Canadian based. Globally minded.

Before FLIK...

Two friends shared a dorm room, a Bubble Tea obsession, and a love for entrepreneurship. Brought together through Next36, a highly competitive Canadian entrepreneurship program for young leaders, Ravina Anand and Michelle Kwok spent many hours discussing the disconnect between traditional entrepreneurial goals and social-impact mindset in between rom-com movie marathons.


During those conversations, they came to a single conclusion; the women they admired were at the forefront of incredible innovations and social movements, but many of these figures stayed relatively unknown to the public.


And with that realization, an idea was born: the Female Laboratory of Innovative Knowledge, a place where women can share their stories, discover an invaluable network, and aspire to inspire.
