In 2019, over 1,000 women of color gathered at the Mason Fine Arts space in Atlanta for the inaugural ElevateHer Crawl. It was an afternoon filled with love, laughter, dancing, and empowerment as fellow entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs in the making came together in support of one another over good music, delicious bites and inspiring panel discussions, while shopping our curated marketplace featuring women-owned brands. The festival resulted in $35,000 in sales for 28 vendors from around the country, and sparked discussions and ideas on how to elevate and succeed as a self-funded business looking to land major retail partnerships, investors, and acquisition deals. It was #BlackGirlMagic at its finest, filled with amazing vibes and unforgettable memories.
