US$100.00raised of $5,000.00 goal goal
Dudettes! So, you wanna know my story? Let me break it down for you:
My name is Nadia, a 27-year-old Palestinian woman. I've always had the dream of owning a business. But, you know, starting a business is a challenge for anyone, anywhere, even more so here in Palestine, where resources are scarce, especially for women.
How Dudettes came about?
One very personal goal of rising above the stereotypical ideas of what a woman's place is within our culture. Statements like: "Women belong in the kitchen," "Women should stay home and raise the kids!" or "women are just too emotional to run a business on their own!". Despite living my entire life hearing these statements, I never let them discourage me.
We, the Dudettes, aim to empower Palestinian women by providing opportunities in fields that are male-dominated in our society. Our ultimate goal is to see women filling positions in software development, digital services and so on. Our goal is to hire a staff that consists of at least 75% women while providing the safest environment possible for them to explore their potential and grow along with Dudettes.
Dudettes business model and what we offer:
At Dudettes, we provide modern solutions that advance entrepreneurs, new businesses and nonprofit organizations:
1. We offer digital growth services such as social media marketing, SEO (search engine optimization), SEM (search engine marketing), and email marketing among other services.
2. We offer fundraising services for our clients to help them gain access to financial resources necessary to achieve their goals.
3. We offer strategy and consultancy services that help our clients get direction and perspective of the best paths to success!
4. Dudettes is also working on developing a new platform that will advance the economic empowerment of other dudettes in the Arab world and hopefully around the globe! (We'll keep you updated on that!)
So, where we at now?
We're the Dudettes! We've successfully established our business model and even retained our first set of clients! However, upon receiving interest from more customers, we've realized that we need to recruit more staff, purchase software tools, and establish a physical office to keep up with the demand! This was a huge step and confirmed to us that our dream is becoming a reality!
What do we want now?
We want the Dudettes on the map! We want access to the myriad of opportunities available for dudettes like us!
How do we want to get there?
We are reaching out to supporters just like you, who believe in our vision, to help us raise the capital necessary to move forward in our initial startup phase.
Did I catch your attention? Not yet? Well, get this:
If we reach our target, we will pay it forward. The Dudettes will help another dudette start her own business!
