WASHINGTON, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- When a woman goes into business for herself, she should never feel that she is in business by herself. That's the power of collective intelligence – the hallmark of being a member of Her Corner. As renowned entrepreneurs and sought-after speakers, Frédérique Irwin and Kimberly Berger have helped women break through barriers keeping them from achieving their maximum potential. Their passion for connecting women, learning from them as well as teaching them comes from their own experiences in starting and investing in businesses as women.
"There are more than 11 million women-owned businesses in the U.S. generating nearly $2 trillion in revenues, as of 2016. But I promise you that every single one of those women said to themselves, 'I can't do this' more than a hundred times before they 'made it.' We want other women just getting started to know they have a resource in Her Corner, to help them with whatever it takes to grow their business," said Irwin, Founder and CEO of Her Corner.
"We are so grateful for the enthusiasm and creativity of the women we get to work with. They prove that it doesn't matter your age, industry or where you live – women can truly do anything in business with the right mindset and tools to get there. And we love being part of their growth story," added Berger, President and COO of Her Corner.
Her Corner is a membership organization which reviews applications for admission, though all are welcome at their monthly, free events. Women who join must be in business for more than a year and pay a yearly due. They are personally and immediately connected with at least three other Her Corner members who can offer technical assistance, other business introductions or sales opportunities. For women interested in specialized skills development, Her Corner offers graduated rates for their popular Accelerator Series – which sells out quickly, even as new classes series are consistently being added. And for those who prefer one-on-one attention, there are individualized mentorships.
The training, connections and – most importantly – the support offered by Her Corner is the army from which each member can draw as they grow their business. That's the power of the being collectively intelligent – as women.
