Project Description

WHO IS FREEDOM FLEUR?

 

Freedom Fleur is an emergent for-profit social enterprise. We realize our mission of economic empowerment and education for women through our sustainable fashion brand and ed-tech platform. Freedom Fleur is focused on building a bridge to entrepreneurial resources which lead to financial freedom for women of all backgrounds. Freedom Fleur's lifestyle brand offers versatile options for the ambitious visionary woman, from her workwear to her home life. Our process is adaptive and speaks to the visionary woman’s lifestyle and values.  We seek to catalyze and inspire women to be change agents. We accomplish this by being committed to our online tech platform, "FF Social Club", which includes resource sharing, redistribution, employment, and business training. For the past five years, the mission of Freedom Fleur has been made possible by the efforts of women from our national and local teams.

 

FF TEAM

 

CURRENT CHALLENGES

 

At Freedom Fleur, we aim to solve the problem of economic instability and the reduction of poverty by empowering women's participation in the economy. In order to address these issues, we need funding to employ staff and expand our resources.  We are in a position now to grow but need start-up capital and real investment to do so. Without investment, we will not have the resources to maintain our operations that includes our social club, brand production, and community outreaches. 

If we do not meet our funding goals, we are at risk of suspension and discontinuation of the Freedom Fleur operations.

 

The Problem

 

 

Our Big Idea:

(Empower women with OPPORTUNITY!)

 

Our biggest idea and accomplishment to date, has been creating a network of ethical and sustainable mills and manufacturers that have the same values that we carry at Freedom Fleur for the economic empowerment of women. We pride ourselves in not taking any shortcuts when it comes to sourcing quality fabrics and finding out if the factory conditions and wages are fair for the women in those countries. This strong stance has opened doors for us to be able to pitch our business at Fashionnovation in New York City, to some of the biggest names in the fashion, tech, and sustainability industry. We feel we are creating an ecosystem at Freedom Fleur that will outlive us and that matters. Through our various endeavors that include the brand, the social club and the FF empowerment sessions, we will continue to be innovative in our mission to make women a priority.

 

BIG IDEA

 

YOUR SUPPORT WILL HELP US FLOURISH:

 

We’re asking for your support so we can build our brand and expand our reach to women all over the world. 

Our work and mission is centered around women. Our objective at Freedom Fleur is to reach women locally and globally who are aspiring business owners or currently founders in need of resources. The resources we are raising will enable us to establish our programs that include the "FF Social Club," an ed-tech platform, Freedom Sessions, a support community for women,  as well as complete our new line of sustainably sourced clothing.  These efforts are at the heart of this campaign. 

We’re asking for funding for our phase one expenses that support: 

  • Staff positions: Project Manager, Administrator, Social Media Director, Contractor, Accountant/Bookkeeper, and Intern will be hired contractually to assist and maintain the FF vision 
  • Operational costs: Updating all of FF platforms and maintenance that include Marketing, PR, Ad Send, Website, software, clerical, office space leasing and supplies              
  • Production and Material cost: To help create and resource FF clothing and products 
  • Deliverables: Raw cost involved with completing this crowdfunding project.

 

GOALS + STRETCH GOALS:

 

Goals

Market size/opportunity:

 

SUSTAINABLE FASHION

  • The global ethical fashion market is expected to grow from $6.93 billion in 2021 to $7.57 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.1%. The market is expected to grow to $10.28 billion in 2026 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8%.

EDUCATIONAL TECH 

  • The global education technology market size was estimated at $237.6 billion in 2021, and it is expected to touch $998.4 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 17.3%. With the development of technologies such as AI and IoT, Edtech solutions are set to evolve. 

The European Commision states that: "It is fundamentally imperative to expand women’s access to education, and learning platforms stand to benefit significantly by expanding women’s engagement online. Depending on the market growth trajectory, closing gaps in women’s enrollment could add up to $14 billion to the value of the market for online education in emerging markets in the five years between 2022 and 2026 alone, equivalent to increasing the market by approximately 10 percent. Further gains would accrue as the market grows."

Support

 

 

 We’ve made intentional strides, since the brand began, to provide access to financial literacy, funding, business courses, access to dignified work and inspiration for the community.  Freedom Fleur is aiming to be a household brand that is publicly traded. To get there we will generate the majority of our revenue through our clothing line and sustainable products through online sales and ARR through the FF Social Club platform.

 

THANK YOU

 

 

There are women all across the world who have never realized their dreams and visions because of the lack of access to resources, capital and support. Women of color have been the most impacted by these injustices. We have taken these challenges head on and are determined to be a bridge that connects women to a better and brighter future. Your support will enable us to meet the growing needs many women are facing each day. Thank you for your generosity and allowing us to stand for freedom.  

 

With Gratitude, 

The Freedom Fleur Team
