Girls Crushing It is a Bay Area-based nonprofit dedicated to empowering girls through entrepreneurship.

Our in-person (and now virtual) pop-up shops have been attended by 12,000+ customers. We're thrilled to be expanding to East Contra Costa (ECC) and invite you to join our Spring 2021 cohort of young entrepreneurs.
