working together to grow million-dollar companies
BrainTrust is a membership organization for ambitious women entrepreneurs.
BrainTrust is a national community of women business owners. Our members use their Vaults™ to champion and challenge one another to grow their companies to their fullest potential. We share experiences in a respectful, open, and confidential space, and we celebrate the many aspects of diversity in each of our members, staff, and partners. We are NOT a networking group or social club... rather we show up to get things done.
BrainTrust helps women accelerate their company growth to the pivotal $1 million mark: a critical milestone currently only met by 1.7% of women business owners.
Getting Down to Business
Our members are driven yet humble, intentionally selected from multiple industries: tech, health care, finance, commercial real estate, manufacturing, entertainment, and more!
By Women Entrepreneurs for Women Entrepreneurs
BrainTrust works because it was created by women who have been there. They know the language, the struggles, and triumphs of business ownership firsthand.
What exactly is a Vault™?
Our members are placed in small groups up to seven women comprising a Vault™. Why do we call it that? A Vault™ is a secure space for things of great value. Your experience, curiosity, and drive are all precious assets for your company but also for your Vault™-mates. Your Vault™ is your safe space, your band of peers, your supporters, and your catalysts for growth.
