ella STARTUPS global empowerment of underrepresented women as entrepreneurs and leaders

At the core of my mission to foster diversity and inclusivity in the business world, I founded ella STARTUPS, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the global empowerment of minority women as entrepreneurs and leaders.

We are more than just a community; we are a movement. We strive to break down barriers, promote diversity, and cultivate a strong network of empowered women, making a significant impact in their communities and beyond.

Our focus is not just on growth but on transformative growth. Through our six key programs, we provide comprehensive support tailored to the unique needs and aspirations of minority women:

  1. Community Connect – Building meaningful connections through curated networking events, mentorship pairings, and a supportive environment where ideas flourish.
  2. Leadership Academy – Developing essential leadership skills through workshops, seminars, and mentorship opportunities led by industry leaders.
  3. Business Accelerator – Offering personalized coaching, funding opportunities, and tailored growth strategies to propel ventures forward.
  4. Media & News – Amplifying voices through strategic media outreach, press releases, and networking with journalists, while teaching core skills in pitching and on-camera techniques.
  5. Skills Mastery – Equipping members with practical skills in marketing, finance, technology, and leadership through specialized workshops and training sessions.
  6. Empowerment Grants – Providing financial support to minority women pursuing entrepreneurial or leadership endeavors, enabling them to realize their aspirations and make a positive impact.

Together, we are shaping a future where minority women are celebrated, their voices are amplified, and their achievements are recognized worldwide. Join us on this transformative journey, where we’re not just changing the narrative; we’re writing a new one.
