Project Description

What is Femology?

(fem~o~lo~gy: the science of women)

With headquarters in Detroit, Michigan, Femology provides a network of co-working and acceleration spaces built for women entrepreneurs. A true haven to bolster the productivity and creativity of it’s members. An environment and workspace that is both transformative and collaborative that offers dynamic office space, capital resources and mentorship needed to grow scalable and successful women-led businesses.

Our Why

While there are social clubs and co-working spaces, throughout the city there didn’t seem to be a universal, all-inclusive setting for women, at all levels, across all industries to gather, learn, support and connect. The gap is wide and widening further as women are becoming entrepreneurs at record levels. In order to reach more women across industries with impact, value and effectiveness, the idea of Femology was born.

Combining innovative and accessible workspaces with tailored learning experiences, content and programming, Femology seeks to enhance the greatest strengths of its members. Since inception in late 2017, Femology has welcomed over 1,000 event attendees and over 100 members with our current 500 sq.ft. location. 

The Mission

We’re building a dynamic and diverse community of women who take control of their lives and invest in themselves and each other. Femology is a haven for the creative, the ambitious, the change makers, and the trailblazers. It is the ultimate business advocate for women providing the mentorship and social community needed to thrive. We invite you to join us this Fall for the grand opening of our new space!

Why crowdfunding?

Femology's power lies with our members and our community. We want our members to feel as much a part of building what Femology is as we do. We’ve partnered with iFundWomen, a female-only crowdfunding platform, to help get the job done. Funds secured through our crowdfunding campaign will be used to further accelerate the build out of our new flagship location Detroit, MI, the most critical component of the nationwide Femology expansion.

 

The Female Founders

Founded in 2017 by Meagan Ward, Femology was born out of the sheer need of women wanting to hold space. Meagan is the incomparable impact leader, strategist and branding maven leading an enterprising network of professional women through dynamic execution of brand creation, strategy and advocacy. Crafting her own life’s work around the transcendence of womanhood and career, Meagan’s keen expertise as a serial entrepreneur and industry trailblazer consistently propels women forward in successful business ownership through transformation of passion into purpose.

After years of working with women through her design firm, she realized the gap in the Detroit area for driven and entreprenurial women to assemble. There was a burning desire for professional growth yet no physical place for women in business to get together with access to coaching, mentoring and networking, to name a few, at an enterprise level.
