“With, we’ve created an ecommerce and social platform for women who are starting or growing a business that can’t be found anywhere else,” says Erin Hurry, Founder of “Unlike other websites that lets women post a listing or leave a signature post about there service or product, ours stands completely on its own, is fully supported by the latest Web 2.0 features with offering a call to action directly on our site.”

Nationwide, women-owned businesses have grown steadily in each of the last ten years.

Women-owned firms in the United States provide jobs for 18.5 million people and generate sales of nearly $2.38 trillion annually. Women now make up 41 percent of the individuals with a net worth of $500,000 or more proving a positive of the need for a community tailored specifically for women entrepreneurs.

Women are responsible for the achievements of increased economic growth, improved productivity, improved distribution of income, and improved employment rate, that’s why we need to support these Girls with Goals.”
