My name is Yasmina F. Edwards, I am a French native of African heritage based in the US. As a French immigrant, I have used my drive, resilience, and energy to create a life for myself.
After having worked for 15 years in Fortune 500 corporations, I launched my own companies and built strong networks across three continents: Europe, Africa, and North America.
I am a serial entrepreneur, I’d like to share my experience with you as a Founder, Coach, Capital Raising Advisor and expert in cultural intelligence.
My mission is to strengthen and amplify your voice by helping you build a strong personal branding in line with your values and vision while breaking new ground to scale your business.
Ten years ago, I was told to look for a new job because the company I was working for was about to be acquired. I decided then and there to take control of my destiny. I was not going to leave my life in someone else’s hands. This was the moment I became an entrepreneur, and I have never wavered in that decision.
Launching my own company and creating my own wealth were the only alternatives. I knew I wanted to build a business with an impact-driven mission. I understood, as a woman, a French immigrant of the African diaspora, that my path to success would face challenges, having, like many before me, experienced inequity and bias. So, my life’s mission became one of service to underrepresented communities, especially women.
In 2014, I launched my first company, EGMNY. I built the business from the ground up, with no connections, no funds, and a single client. In spite of obstacles and closed doors, I stood tall and remained focused, knowing that fulfilling my mission would overcome any setbacks I was facing.
