The story exchange is a nonprofit media organization that showcases entrepreneurial women from around the world who are contributing to their communities and collectively making an impact on the global economy.
More than 126 million women are starting or running businesses in 67 economies, creating millions of jobs and generating trillions of dollars in revenue. However, many of the features captured by the media are of either large coporations with women leaders or are male-owned. The Story Exchange wants to change that narrative by telling the stories of female entrepreneurs in an array of industries who are making a difference, breaking through barriers, and driving economic growth.
The 1,000 Stories project is a digital media project that features woman business owners, and tells the story of each women and their business.
Michele Helene Cohen, Founder and CEO of Wabi Sabi Eco Fashion Concept was recently featured on the site.
“I decided to merge my fashion needs with my wellness routine by creating a contemporary women’s workwear brand made with 100% certified organic fabrics that was flattering, functional and that I could feel good about wearing to work each day.”
