Five Badass Crowdfunding Campaigns Launched by Female Founders.

Support Women-Owned Businesses Launch New Projects!

Launching a new dream can be daunting, however with the innovation of crowdfunding it’s easier then ever. Crowdfunding on sites such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Kiva allow someone with a dream to be able to do product testing, create marketing support, and importantly see if it’s a viable idea.

Kickstarter campaigns are one of the most popular to do and the most difficult to complete. They have tight deadlines and they are all or nothing. As of Sept 2018, the percentage of projects launched that are successful hover around 36% and they largely rely on the support of friends, family and social media allies.

In the spirit of supporting female-lead ventures, here are 5 great ventures you can support on Kickstarter today.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
