Less than two percent of women-owned businesses in the United States ever hit $1M in revenue—a startling fact that prompted Dames Founder, Meghann Conter, to take serious action.
She knew that traditional networking and community building wouldn’t be enough to solve this problem, and her experiences swapping battle stories with other female business leaders told her it was time for something new.
A community where women who have already reached that level could share their wisdom and be inspired to help other women get there too.
She envisioned a global network of like-minded collaborators who laugh often, hug when they feel like it, and reach new heights together.
