Why We Have Joined The F Project, to Support Female Founders

We are the cofounders of Solemates.  We naturally have always supported other women in all walks of life - entrepreneurs, creators, inventors, doctors, teachers, bankers, mothers, daughters and more.  When Erika & Phyllis approached us to be founding members of The F Project, the first network of its kind to activate women supporting other women in business, we jumped at it.

If we had a dollar for every time a man has asked us, “Do you do this full-time?”, or “Do you work from home?”, we would be funding everyone else in the network.  While these comments may not be ill-intentioned, they do highlight the divide that still exists between how men treat other men vs. how they treat women in business.  

While we have been fortunate to have found support from both men and women throughout our journey building Solemates, we recognize the need to foster a support system for women owned businesses.  We are better together, and believe that through this network, we can set an example of supporting one another to raise all of our respective ships.
