Your source for creative business inspiration
Discover a new breed of fresh start-ups, cutting-edge businesses, purpose-driven brands and the makers behind them
Freja is a platform to get inspired and up to date with everything a modern-day creative needs.
Our digital lives are filled by rag to riches stories of young start-up founders and one-hour long webinars on how to turn a passion into a business.
But in the mists of the get-rich-quick schemes and overnight successes a breed of fearless creatives are starting and growing companies out of a will to make something great and meaningful. Valuing sustainability over financial gain, balanced lifestyle over productivity, and quality over quantity creating well-crafted products, inspiring brands and innovative solutions. With their creativity they are shaking up the way we think and do business and revisiting what success means.
Freja is the brainchild of Francesca Mey. After launching a print magazine at the age of 24 Francesca’s has since then been working as a photographer and digital strategist jumping from city to city. Now based in Berlin she founded Freja as a source of inspiration and tools to help the new generation of entrepreneur make the right choices and create a life they can be proud of.
Freyja is a strong and passionate goddess of the Norse mythology whose name means “The Lady”.
It’s no secret that the business media world has predominantly featured images of men, a portrait that doesn’t totally reflect today’s reality. So we thought that a strong female figure was the best choice to embody today’s business and innovation landscape.
There is no better time than now to create a life on your own terms. You have all the tools and resources to be who you want to be. The irony is that with so many possibilities it becomes hard to make a choice. How do you know what is the best path for you? And when you know it, how do you get there?
Freja Talks try to answer those questions, by asking and learning from those who have been in the game for a little longer. Through authentic talks with the people behind today’s most creative brands, business and innovations, each episode gives concrete tools and actionable system to get you from where you are to where you want to be.
Topics include how to build a successful career, turn a passion into a financial and sustainable venture, grow a community, create an authentic brand, keep a healthy lifestyle and create a meaningful life.
