When you donate, put your answer in the donor comment to vote for one of The Wright Sisters. The Sister with the most votes after the Founders' Rumble will cut the other sister’s hair however she wants… and the losing Sister has to wear that style for 90 days (through the holidays).
What could be so crucial that the Sisters would risk their hair?
The 6 million business women working remotely without resources for stability. That’s what.
Rae and Cris built The WEM Sisterhood from a meetup group in Houston to a virtual country club after experiencing first-hand how debilitating work-from-home business ownership can be.
Entrepreneurship is already a rollercoaster of epic highs and demoralizing lows. Business women who work remotely – often juggling families and financial challenges – waste time and money trying to find resources that clearly explain business growth strategies. The programs and accelerators set up for entrepreneur training are intimidating, hard-to-find and confusing. And after the class – and cohort – is over, there is no connectivity. This leaves the entrepreneur stuck at home facing the statistics that say they are likely to fail and two times more likely to suffer depression.
At WEM (pronounced like "whim"), we leverage technology to ensure business women are connected to who and what they need to know to build sturdy businesses. And we do it as a family, primarily from The WEM House, our virtual country club. The unique space is conveniently accessed through any web browser, and is open 24/7. That means women anywhere can find their way to Sisters and resources they can trust. We have a running list of existing programming that assists the ladies. But we’re not all work. We also let our hair down for relatable events and conversations that grow us as women.
We’re currently raising $500,000 for a 2-year runway for the team, marketing and legal protections needed to reach as many business women as possible. The $25,000 from the Founder’s Rumble, as we call it, will springboard our marketing and legal protections, filling in the funding gap until we reach our full raise.
The Wright Sisters are the brains behind WEM. They’re biological sisters who are each business owners in their own right. They have forged virtual connections since they were children, and as siblings to five others, they know the dynamics behind relationships.
And they’ve never done anything without having fun!
So, pick an answer to the question, donate as much as you can, and follow us for the haircut!
