Fly With Us!
- An action-based crew dedicated to developing businesses and the women behind them by identifying what makes them "FLY"--their niche, brand, business--and encouraging the fusion of their "FLY" with other women doing the same.
In 2018, only 2.2% of venture capital funding towards start ups (~$96.7 billion dollars) went to women. Less than 1% went to women of color. We plan to make space for us amongst that 97.8% by first working through the disparities observed within the other two. Through intersectional and intentional events and workshops.
To create environments through event production for women, by women, that are committed to celebrating success, encouraging collaboration, and motivating growth in pursuit of their passion(s) through ACTION.
4 Platforms for Takeoff!
Motivate + Create + Collaborate + Celebrate
All Women + Femme
When we speak about business development, artists are often left out of the conversation. We encourage artists to attend all our workshops, but provide WE Rise as a platform for them to exhibit their talents and gain new supporters.
Open sharing and story-telling from walk-in performers, welcome.
We curate intimate, women + femme brave spaces on a quarterly basis, addressing tough topics that are often avoided. It is only through truly hearing each other and getting to the root of why we think or feel the different ways we do that we can expect to see unity and empowerment. We must have actionable conversation before we can expect to truly fly forward collectively!
FHF seeks to help self-identifying women invest in their development and professional growth. We provide spaces w/ educational workshops and networking opportunities for all who are in support of our mission and women at all levels within our Fuse Her Fly community.
The concept of Fuse Her Fly was curated by our Founder, Jae Webb who--in building her first business, An Original Peace--felt first-hand the need for a space where woman entrepreneurs could gather to assist, celebrate, and encourage one another. Instead of waiting to find this, she decided to build it and chose a crew of #highfly(HER)s to join her on the journey. Through the efforts of the entire Fuse Her Fly Flight Crew, we were able to successfully launch the beginning of this movement on November 10th, 2018 at the Hairpin Arts Center located in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois.
