In 2016, after spending hours scouring the web for a comprehensive list of WOBs (women-owned businesses), we realized - much to our utter shock and surprise - none existed. Anywhere. So we set out to build one.
equallet is the first local search platform populated solely with female-founded companies across all industries!
With Americans spending over $11 trillion on products and services each year, and with conscious consumerism on the rise, we recognized a huge opportunity to connect WOBs to the consumers, community, and capital they need to thrive.
OUR VISION & MISSION
Equallet envisions a world where women thrive economically, socially and politically. Our mission is to enable everyone to shop, hire and invest in women everyday. By supporting the growth and success of WOBs, we help to create jobs and advancement opportunities that generate more female leaders and put more women at every decision-making table.
