Framingham, MA: wiseHer, a female-founded global knowledge marketplace that helps women business owners and professionals advance through 1:1 access to expert advice, is proud to announce a new partnership with Vital Voices, a global movement that invests in women leaders who are solving the world’s greatest challenges.

Through this collaboration, 800+ alumnae of Vital Voices’ Economic Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Programs (including the Global Ambassadors Program, the VVGROW Fellowship, the Fortune-U.S. Department of State Global Women’s Mentoring Partnership and the WEEmpower United Nations SDG Global Business Challenge) will enjoy:

  • Discounts for calls with wiseHer Experts, a highly-vetted set of experienced subject matter experts offering practical, tactical advice on key topics such as sales, marketing, business planning/strategy, finance/pricing, social media, and more.
  • Access to wiseHer’s free business and professional development resources
  • Content and webinars tailored to their needs and interests

Vital Voices alumnae will also have the opportunity to receive some direct financial support from wiseHer. As a social enterprise, wiseHer dedicates a portion of its proceeds to a fund that provides grants to both its charity partners (including Vital Voices) and members who apply for business or professional development support.  All Vital Voices alumnae who sign up with wiseHer will have the opportunity to apply for a grant. This partnership enables wiseHer, which launched in the Fall of 2019, to expand its global reach via Vital Voices’ network of more than 18,000 women leaders across 182 countries and territories and secure user experiences and data from female entrepreneurs worldwide. 

“Vital Voices has worked with women leaders from around the world for more than 20 years, and we know that alumnae of our programs are always looking for more guidance, more training and more opportunities to continue scaling their growth,” said Zoe Dean-Smith, Vice President of Economic Empowerment and Entrepreneurship. “Partnering with a woman-founded organization like wiseHer allows us to deliver on requests for on-demand advice on key business issues, and will enable our alumni to access the immediate support they need.”

“We are inspired by the daring, talented alumnae of Vital Voices’ Economic Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Programs,” says Kathryn Rose, Founder and CEO of wiseHer.  “We are committed to providing these leaders with personalized advice and resources that helps to accelerate their impact locally as well as to support Vital Voices in its efforts to positively impact women globally.”
