It’s no surprise I want more women taking the leap into this entrepreneurial journey. I just think there are so many incredibly thoughtful, brilliant women out there with bold, nuanced solutions to the problems that surround us. And I think we offer a different approach to running companies and building companies that can endure.
I’ve written about how we need more women to start and how maybe something as simple as a launching a 4-week could help.
Now I have this amazing opportunity to support and guide 3 incredible teams doing exactly this. From solving the wardrobe boredom professional women face (Armoire) to arming gift givers with thoughtful, unique gifts (Token Gifts) to helping ride-sharers connect quickly and well (Flok). For me the point is not the individual problems that they face but that each of these woman have decided to put themselves out there and try.
They are in the arena, shedding blood, sweat and tears. And learning. And trying again.
And I couldn’t be prouder. It may be just 3 now. But it’s the mightiest of starts.
