Taking the idea of a traditional wedding registry (where marrying couples create a list of gifts they would like) and the best practices from crowdfunding, Shine Registry is a portal for businesses asking for the things they need. And it’s all to support female founders of ethical businesses.

Whereas you you might ask for bed linen when you get married, with Shine Registry you can ask for office supplies, network connections, social media testimonials or any other thing you might need when you start a business.

Founders ask for support while they are starting their businesses and give their communities an opportunity to show that support in meaningful and substantive ways.

Meeting with Joan was an exciting opportunity to expand my network and learn about additional tools to grow as the leader of a small startup team.
