OUR MISSION

Girls Crushing Its mission is to empower girls to flex their leadership muscles through entrepreneurship and to increase the pipeline of female business leaders.

WHY IT MATTERS

In 2018, women earned 85% of what men earned
 

The wage gap is decades away from closing for white women and more than 100 years away for women of color.

WHAT WE DO

Entrepreneurship Academy 

Girls Crushing It educates girls on entrepreneurship.  While not all girls will become entrepreneurs, the leadership skills they learn in the process will equip them to take on any challenge.

In our first year... 

 

  • We educated 300+ girls ages 8-17 in entrepreneurship
     

  • 90% of participants reported increased confidence, tenacity and/or financial literacy

Pop-up Shops

Our educational programming culminates into functioning pop-up shops where girls apply the skills they have acquired by selling their products and services to real customers.

In our first year... 

  • Our young entrepreneurs sold more than 7,000 products
     

  • Our pop-up shops were attended by more than 10,000 customers
