We’re Crowned Curls—a Colorado based Women of Color (WOC) collective on a mission to create a worldwide community among women that engages in love, creativity, healing and celebration of sisterhood.
For the last four years we have been holding spaces for creatives, entrepreneurs and every WOC in between to come together to cultivate and nourish community through intentional gatherings, events, online publications and the overall support of one another.
This Fall we will be opening up our Crowned Curls Community Truck. Previously used as a mobile boutique in Colorado, this now mobile community centered space will be a creative hub for our community — a gathering place for women and girls of color to come together to fuel creativity, nurture connections, foster relationships and feel at home with other like-minded women.
Our Truck will include:
A clean, safe and warm work & social space
Workspace with high-speed wifi and outlets
Comfortable social lounge with cushions, pillows & rug
Unique events & programs designed for community
Completely FREE & open to the community
*Prior to our truck's grand opening in October held in Denver, CO, we will be hosting a “soft launch” in Denver in September 2019 through our HerTRIBE event. HerTRIBE gathers generations of boss babes, mommas & creatives to ignite passionate conversations centered on the ups and down of womanhood, the healing exchange of generational wisdom and making amazing memories all while building the heart of our tribe. This soft launch will allow our HerTRIBE attendees, sponsors and interested in investors to get a taste of our brand in person.
Because why not?
According to CNBC.com, statically female business owners receive 50% less loan funding compared to male business owners.
iFundWomen has created a unique and authentic platform for women owned businesses to flourish, support other women owned businesses and raise money. We love that iFundWomen supports, invests and celebrates women making huge impacts in their communities every single day.
Money from our iFundWomen campaign will go towards building out our physical space, which allows us to do more of what we love: building, cultivating and nourishing community.
We are raising capital through friends, family, YOU (hopefully!) and the community that’s helped and continue to help us build Crowned Curls. We aim and hope to extend and expand our impact here in Colorado for years to come.
Yazz Atmore ||
Founder & Creative Director
Frustrated with the lack of safe, creative and collaborative spaces designed for women of color in Colorado, Yazz and couple of her college mates hosted the first ever #CrunkCurlsFestival in 2016, held in Denver, Colorado.
#CrunkCurlsFestival was a way to not only connect communities of color to all things natural hair, beauty and wellness but also a space for genuine connection, learning and celebration of self and others.
Since then, Yazz has built a well established brand that serves and spreads its mission to thousands of people everyday. Through Crowned Curls she continues to partner with small and local businesses/brands, bring community together through panels, workshops, brunches, festivals, etc.
Thank you so much for visiting and supporting our iFundWomen Campaign!
