ABOUT THE SOCIETY OF WE

The Society of Women Entrepreneurs offers support, mentorship, and meaningful connection to women entrepreneurs worldwide. Our mission is to help you acheive yours.

In 2016, the founders — female entrepreneurs themselves — noticed that most of the training and advice for business building they came across was geared towards men, and failed to take into account the unique challenges and strengths of women entrepreneurs.

They decided to change that.

That summer, they brought together a group of twelve female business owners who were frustrated with the lack of support they had, and The Society of Women Entrepreneurs was born. They met in each other’s living rooms twice a month, and within two years, they’d grown to over 3000 members.

Today, The Society of WE has thousands of members in multiple cities and is currently expanding to Sister Chapters nationally and internationally. This ecosystem of women helping, supporting, and mentoring other women is attracting new members every day, and The Society of WE is on track to become the most impactful tribe of women entrepreneurs around the world.

ABOUT YOUR SPEAKER:

Kelly Wynne Ferguson
FOUNDER, Kelly Wynne Designs

Kelly Wynne is a local Austin fashion brand founded in 2012 by designer Kelly Wynne Ferguson. She created and launched her first line of handbags in the spring of 2013 and has been #wynning ever since. Kelly began her professional career in public relations, but her lifelong dream and passion for design stayed at the forefront of her mind. She was searching for unique printed leather handbags with an exotic look and feel that wouldn’t break the bank. Kelly knew she had found a missing niche in the market, but with minimal experience in the industry, she needed encouragement and direction on where to begin. Her career mentor pushed her to vocalize this dream by asking the simplest question. “If you could do anything, anything at all… if money wasn’t an issue, the sky was the limit… what would it be?” Kelly finally blurted out, “I just want to design handbags!” Verbally acknowledging her passion for the first time gave her the momentum to take the next step in turning her vision into a reality.

In the fall of 2017, Kelly Wynne launched one of the most recognizable high end clear bags on the market along with the announcement of the new NCAA and NFL clear bag policy. With so many football loving customers, Kelly was determined to design a clear bag that does not cramp your style! Since then the Clear Mingle Mingle Mini has become one of the best selling items making it the clear wynner. One year later, Nordstrom selected Kelly Wynne as their premier clear bag line to sell online.

With continued growth and love for the brand across the nation, Kelly Wynne continues to “wynnespire” women to “Dare to WYNNE” in all aspects of life!
