Francesca Chia, 27, CEO & Co-Founder of GoGet
What started as a brainstorm over coffee with pals, was followed by a few serendipitous events, which evolved into a start-up jackpot which revolutionised the way mundane errands are run. For Francesca Chia, the growth and success of GoGet was a welcomed surprise. “I didn’t quit my day job at first, but things happened so quickly that I had to jump on this bandwagon before I regretted it,” she says.
What is your proudest achievement since you started GoGet?
When we reached out one year anniversary and we held an event for our community. The turnout was amazing and GoGetters were celebrated at a scale that we could not have imagined 12 months prior.
What is your biggest fear in terms of your career?
To go through an experience and not learn anything from it.
If you could swap lives with any female, dead or alive, who would it be?
Jaqueline Novogratz. She wrote The Blue Sweater and it is about social enterprises. She has impacted many people around the world through sustainable business practices and being empathetic.
What’s the most important lesson teenage girls should learn?
To ask questions and have intellectual curiosity. This will be the seed of self development and discovery.
