It all started as a simple thought:
"Wouldn't it be cool if there was a company that contracted women of any profession?"
That way, women could do what they were really good at- be it project management, photography, design, writing, or anything else- with the freedom and flexibility of self employment. This company would provide office space (no more cleaning up for meetings at home), general assistance (without the costly overhead of hiring someone), and a community of peers for support (so you don't always feel like you're working on an island). All the perks of working for a larger company without having to sacrifice what you were truly passionate about seemed to us like an idea worth investing in!
Since that original concept, The OWN has emerged as a platform of subscribe-able and supportive services rather than a contracting company. Where contracting was more of a "top down" approach, subscribe-able services is a "bottom up" platform. This way, our clients can maintain complete control over their businesses and benefit from our services. We still provide the space, the assistance and the collaborative community, without the need to tell anyone how to run their business!
Today, we're more than another networking group. We're here to give female business owners access to the tools they need to be successful. Office space, administrative assistance, web presence, social media promotion, networking opportunities, and a supportive group of peers are all available resources through our platform. Since each service is also available on a month to month basis, you're free to change your services easily with your changing business needs. No long term commitments for expensive leases. Just you, your business, and our support!
OWN it. Love it.
