Who We Work With

We support female-identifying founders from creative and non-managerial backgrounds in making the shift from founder to CEO. We do that through strategic planning and operating support, whether one-time or ongoing. We specialize in working with self-funded or bootstrapped businesses.

We offer strategic planning, executive coaching, and operating support to our clients.

We’ve been excited to watch our clients move their revenue from five to seven digits in as little as one year. Beyond the big growth numbers, we want to support as many women as possible to become successful entrepreneurs and business owners, whatever that means for them.

We believe business ownership is the path to eliminating the wage gap, building progressive working environments, and designing the lives that we want without sacrificing meaningful work.
