Expatpreneur Awards 2017: This Singaporean Mom’s Love For Her Child Made Her A CEO

01 March 2017

This month, we’re celebrating the successes of savvy expatriates and Singaporeans, as well as the setbacks they overcame, to make life better in Singapore in our Expatpreneur Awards 2017. 

“My friend Google was not yet around,” Sharon Wong, Founder and CEO of motherswork jokes while expressing frustration over the then-lack of information about safe, stylish car seats, strollers and more.

“By the time I was pregnant with my third, I had a portfolio of contacts of brands from around the world.” What to do with all of that research? “Open a baby store!” she says.

That was 18 years ago, once the family had settled in Singapore.

She’s since launched five motherswork stores in Singapore and seven in China.
