Start Something Priceless: An Inside Look at the Small Business Marketplace at Our NYC Conference

Did you know: Women start more than 1800 new businesses every. single. day. And we’re not just launching companies, we’re scaling them—women employ nearly nine million people and have generated $1.8 trillion in sales. We’re here, we’re building businesses, and we’re making that money! That’s why we partnered with Mastercard to bring you the Small Business Marketplace at our New York conference. Check out the vendors below!

Each of our small business owners set up shop in the beautiful loft of our conference venue and were able to meet and greet attendees in addition to selling their products. We were thrilled to have the following vendors on site:

Kelsea Olivia Gaynor of East Olivia

Michelle Cadore of YES I AM Clothing

Bliss Lau of Bliss Lau

Teressa Foglia of Teressa Foglia

Coco Dotson & Breezy Dotson of Coco and Breezy

One of the most powerful parts of Mastercard’s marketplace was the “idea wall.” Together we asked attendees to share the priceless ideas that sparked their business, and it was incredible to read some of the responses. From inspiring vacations to words of wisdom from mentors and everything in between, it’s clear that business inspiration sparks just about everywhere!

The Small Business Marketplace is part of a larger small business program by Mastercard and Create & Cultivate. Through our Women’s Business Advisory Council, we’re bringing the experience and insight of five amazing entrepreneurs to you throughout the rest of the year. Check out the council here, and be sure to stay tuned for their words of wisdom at future events!
