Meet the Producers

#bbatx exists to build educated and empowered creative communities at the intersections of sisterhood and space. Through event series, showcases and personal/professional development programs, we amplify and connect women-identifying artists, creatives and entrepreneurs. Since we've been in operation, we've provided a platform of visibility, outreach and financial opportunity to 300+ Texas-based women artists, 400+ women-owned businesses and women activists. We were named "Best Bossy Babes" of 2015 by The Austin Chronicle, Tribeza's Top 10 to Watch in 2016 and we were selected by The White House to attend the United State of Women Summit in June 2016.

We deserve better.

Small business owners, independent creatives and solo-preneurs need resources that speak to their needs. As of 2017, women-owned businesses are growing at twice the speed of businesses owned by men. An increasing number of these entrepreneurs are women of color; many of these businesses are “non-employer,” but overall are responsible for creating 23 million jobs.
 

 
 
 

We need to start work with the idea that we’re going to learn every day.
