On Nov. 25, holiday shoppers and women-owned businesses around the world will join forces to supercharge female entrepreneurship on a global scale. The first ever Women-Owned Wednesday (#WOWDAY) is spearheaded by liftUPlift, a new e-commerce marketplace for a global alliance of women-owned businesses. #WOWDAY is inherently viral – post a deal, share a deal – and curated in a Holiday Guide on liftUPlift.com/WOWDAY.
Women-Owned Wedneday is the day before Thanksgiving, rather than the week after like every other holiday savings events. “We deliberately timed it to replace Black Friday as the unofficial start of the gift-buying season,” says Corielle Heath, Founder of liftUPlift. “We need the biggest day of consumer spending to make the greatest positive impact.”
The world needs women entrepreneurs, but they are vastly underfunded. Female-founded startups receive less than 3% of venture capital, and men are 5x more likely to attain capital through their networks. liftUPlift and #WOWDAY – both led by women and powered by the web – use patronage to accelerate female entrepreneurs and create the opportunity for a 21stcentury female renaissance.
