Founder, CEO, WORLD PULSE
Jensine (Yen-See Nah) Larsen is an award-winning social media entrepreneur, international journalist, and speaker. She is committed to unlocking the creative human potential of women worldwide through digital communication, online communities and reciprocal philanthropy. With her finger on the pulse of women's voices globally, Jensine speaks frequently on the power of technology to speed up global women's empowerment.
At age 28 she founded World Pulse – a digital media network connecting women worldwide and bringing them a global voice – after working as a freelance journalist covering indigenous movements and ethnic cleansing in South America and Southeast Asia. Today World Pulse is powered by tens of thousands of women from more than 190 countries, many who are using internet cafes and cell phones from rural villages and conflict zones, collectively improving the lives of 7.6 million people. www.worldpulse.com
Most recently, Larsen and her team has launched new programs training women in digital empowerment and online movement-building - fostering a network of vocal women leaders from some of the most forgotten regions of the world.
Today women from virtually every country in the world are connecting through World Pulse and producing a multiplier effect of change. By networking through World Pulse’s website grassroots women leaders are finding job opportunities, starting new programs and businesses, launching women’s cybercafés, and finding international speaking opportunities that are changing their lives and lifting their communities.
