We just completed our Beta Test with 100 ladies in our first digital women’s circle that was a month-long journey to awaken women's confidence! Hearing the positive feedback and emotional responses from the women in the Beta shows me we are solving a problem for countless women.
I have a rockstar team behind me and I'm diving into the challenges head first because I know this space is needed in the world.
We have been self-funding and now need some additional cash flow to get us to the home stretch. THAT'S WHERE YOU COME IN!
I ask you to help me with me dream, and a company that will impact women all over the U.S. and beyond.
Regardless of the amount, I am deeply humbled by your support.
Awaken Institute is a digital wisdom platform, for women by women. It's a woman's one-stop for her personal growth, healing and connection.
We curate top-notch content from female thought-leaders and combine it with virtual coaching and community forums.
Awaken Institute transforms solitary (and piecemeal) personal growth to something that is engaging, fun, connective and bite-sized.
Our secret sauce is content + coaching + connection. We increase impact and depth by connecting women with other women around the world so they feel supported.
We believe in an enhanced learning experience, one that prioritizes wisdom over knowledge. We know that standard education just doesn't cut it - it doesn’t teach us the most important things we need to live a fulfilling and balanced life.
Growth, wisdom, and equality happen when women feel confidently supported and have the practical tools to improve their lives.
This is where the Awaken Institute comes in! Think of it as a women’s toolbox, catered, and curated resource library for life.
It will include workshops centered around purpose, leadership, finance, body image, confidence, love and intimacy, values and beliefs, self-care, community, trauma healing, making an impact and so much more.
Research shows that when women are fully expressed and able to create a healthy balance between their minds, bodies and spirits, everyone benefits. The impact ripples across families, communities and the world.
We envision a world in which women have a safe space to learn, grow and heal in order to bring about the greatest version of themselves. A world in which women have learned to practice self-love, compassion, emotional well-being, financial abundance and meaningful partnership in a way that is truly authentic, in alignment and empowered.
Additionally, women need healing and support:
1 in 3 women in the U.S. report having experienced sexual assault, physical violence, and/or stalking in their lifetime.
Approximately 70% of these women victims experience trauma across multiple areas of their lives, including nightmares, insomnia, difficulty with intimate relationships, heightened fear, anxiety, anger, shame, and/or depression.
3 out of 4 women report feeling alone in their struggles; feeling like they don't have adequate support from family and friends.
Women are seeking a safe space to heal and grow and Awaken Institute was created to do just that.
TIMELINE: We’ve been building and self-funding Awaken Institute since March 2019, and with the help of our community and advisors, completed our Beta in September, and are planning to launch the Institute in early 2020.
FUNDING: We are raising $100,000 to cover our online learning platform development and wisdom leader content creation. In true entrepreneurial spirit, we are running very lean and will continue to do.
VISION BY 2020: We want to see hundreds of thousands of women connecting on Awaken Institute. We want to build a global network of women connecting over their personal and professional growth... Because when women are EMPOWERED they make better leaders, partners, mothers, etc. When women are thriving, we all win.
