We're proud, buzzing, and beyond excited to announce that BossBabe is partnering with one of the most iconic women's magazines of all time, ELLE.
Our year-long ELLE x BossBabe partnership is all about celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit, and we have some truly epic things planned to spotlight and support women we admire who are shaping history before our eyes — the go-getters, trailblazers, and game-changers with unapologetic ambition.
Entrepreneurship can often be a lonely and confusing journey. We launched BossBabe to solve for that and here we, just a few years later, partnering with ELLE to bring our message of empowerment and inclusion to over 21 million women worldwide. We're here to tell them they're not alone; we see you, we love you and we've got your back.
A Partnership With Meaning.
It's no coincidence that we're kicking off this epic partnership on International Women's Day. The global celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women, (which took place for the first time on March 8, 1911) is a perfect launching pad for a collaboration rooted in a shared passion.
For the last 75 years, ELLE has been shining a spotlight on the incredible achievements of women around the world. ELLE was founded by a woman for women in a time when it was less culturally accepted for women to lead — in fact, it launched just a year after women in France were granted the right to vote. Today, ELLE is the world's largest women's magazine and media brand with 45 editions and 21M+ readers worldwide and continue to use their reach to empower women with a particular emphasis on freedom.
BossBabe was born with the same mission in mind, to help our global community of 2 million ambitious women create their own version of success. We've become the go-to for female entrepreneurs who want to start or scale their own business through our online courses, sassy quotes, top-rated podcast, entrepreneur membership community, and online magazine.
We're wildly proud to work with ELLE to pave the way for women to rise and become a CEO. And the timing couldn't be better.
The Start of Something Epic.
2020 feels like a new era for female entrepreneurship. About 40% of US businesses are now women-owned. While the number of women-owned businesses increased by 114 percent in the last 20 years, there is still so much work to do.
This year, more than ever, we want to provide the fuel for that transformation. We want to discover and reveal the faces that build tomorrow. The Loudmouths. Rebels. Sages. Artists. CEOs. Visionaries. BossBabes. The women who have the audacity and the drive to pave their own path; to rise and help other women rise too.
The next 12 months of our ELLE BossBabe partnership will be a wild ride. On the podcast and blog, we'll be sharing interviews and profiles of incredible women we're honored to learn from. Off-line, we'll be launching some epic initiatives — including a top-secret project that will literally change lives (and maybe even the world).
We admire women with an entrepreneurial spirit. Those who lead with vision, who choose bravery over complacency, who break boundaries and take risks to reach their massive goals. Most of all, we believe women are the FUTURE of entrepreneurship, so join us in shaping the future and get excited about what we have planned this year!
