Covelle

AN ONLINE CONNECTION + COLLABORATION PLATFORM FOR FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS

WELCOME TO COVELLE

It takes a village to build an empire.

You wake up every day, in a world that thinks your worth is maybe 70% of any random guy standing next to you, and insist that your talents and your ideas are unique and valuable. We are in awe of you.

The truth is, though, that worthy ideas and brilliant people fail every day. Your business lives and dies by the quality and strength of the network and support system you build for yourself.

Imagine being able to find exactly who you need, exactly when you need her: that’s the power of Covelle.

YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN LUCK

Take control of your creative partnerships.

You are not a leprechaun. Luck is not a strategy.

Traditional networking (and even making connections through social media) often comes down to being in the right place at the right time. You are too smart, too talented, and too busy to try to build a business on luck.

A BETTER WAY TO NETWORK

Part secret society, part secret weapon.

More friends, more money, more influence: whatever you want to achieve, Covelle is built to help you connect with women who will inspire and support you, boost your business through dream partnerships, reach more people, and spend more time doing work that matters.

We know entrepreneurship is a battle; it’s our battle, too. We are here to fight for your success, but more importantly, we are here to give you better tools to keep fighting for yourself.

SEARCHABLE DIRECTORY

No more scrolling through social media for hours, hoping you’ll stumble across someone who meets your criteria. Search the directory by location, niche, product/service, business stage, and more.

COLLABORATION LISTINGS

Whether you’re looking to create a joint product or feature other creative entrepreneurs, Covelle makes it easy. Browse all published listings, or see each member’s collaboration requests directly on her profile.

FLOCK PARTIES

Our signature small-group virtual networking events are a huge hit with our members! Pick the topic and time that works best for you, and we’ll match you with 3-4 other women and provide discussion prompts. BYO🍷☕️🍺🍼

PARTNER COMMUNITIES

We love working with existing communities for creativepreneurs! Members of our partner communities receive extended, group-specific functionality, and group leaders get a dashboard stacked with data & insights to help you serve your community.

COFFEE/SKYPE DATES

Call us old-fashioned, but we love grabbing coffee (or hopping on Skype with sweatpants and wine) with another small business owner. Seamlessly schedule one-on-one meetings in Covelle, so you can get straight to “OMG, you too?!”

SHOP

We believe that every day should be Small Business Saturday. Our public Shop of member-created items gives you the option to showcase your products, and makes it silly easy for Covelle members to support other each other financially.

99 PROBLEMS

…doing it alone shouldn’t be one.

Being an entrepreneur doesn’t seem hard because you’re bad at it; building a business seems hard because it is hard, and it’s a heck of a lot harder when you try to do it all by yourself.

Networking does not have to be hard. It doesn’t have to be awkward, or inconvenient, or expensive. You don’t have to hire a babysitter, or put real pants back on after work, or fight rush hour traffic, or take a bus to a weird part of town, or walk into a room where you don’t know anyone, or uproot your life and move to a bigger city, or stretch your budget to the breaking point in order to hang out with other creative business owners.

Wherever you are in the world, wherever you are in your business, Covelle will help you cultivate genuine professional relationships and real, lasting friendships.

SORRY, MOM

Sometimes, “normal” people just won’t get it.

There are some kind of a lot of incredible, cathartic conversations that you can only really have with other entrepreneurs. No, your mom/best friend/boyfriend/wife probably doesn’t understand the pros and cons of the pricing strategies you’re considering, or why you lay awake at night worrying that you’re a complete fraud, or, you know, why you can’t come pick them up at the airport in the middle of the day. They probably don’t want to wax poetic about Instagram algorithms and open rates.

We’re going to give you three guesses where you can go to have those conversations. And the first two don’t count.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

Networking doesn’t have to suck.

Networking is a super lame word for the least lame thing in the world: connecting with other women who get what you’re going through. You deserve a better way to do that.

“But I’m an introvert.” “But I live in the middle of nowhere.” “But I have so many other things to do.” “But conferences and workshops are expensive.” “But I’ve never been to an industry event that led to any real connections.”

Stop right there.

Don’t you dare let anyone tell you – not even you – that in person events are the only way to connect or the best way to really get to know people. You are building a thing that literally would not exist without you; you should know by now that there’s more than one way to climb a mountain.

Your networking style is as unique as you are, and we’re going to help you find it and thrive in it. Meaningful, authentic, life-changing, fun connection opportunities are waiting for you inside Covelle.

Frequently Asked Questions

MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS
  • WHAT’S REQUIRED TO JOIN COVELLE?
  • We serve female entrepreneurs in creative industries with an active online presence. You can read more about our membership criteria here.

  • WHY DIDN’T I QUALIFY?
  • We don’t provide individual explanations for each denied membership. A few of the most common reasons are not being the owner of a small business and not having an active, updated website where we can tell that you’re the owner of a small business.

    FEES & REFUNDS
  • WHY DO YOU REQUIRE A THREE-MONTH INITIAL COMMITMENT?
  • Covelle is like a lot of things: you’re only going to get out what you put in. We’re not setting you up for success if we don’t make you accountable to giving this community your best effort.

  • WHEN WILL I BE BILLED FOR MY MEMBERSHIP?
  • After the first three months, your membership renews monthly. If you sign up on the 10th, your membership will renew each month on the 10th.

  • HOW DO I CANCEL MY MEMBERSHIP?
  • You can downgrade to a free account or cancel your membership at any time after your initial three-month commitment by emailing hey@covelle.co. You’ll continue to have access until the end of your billing cycle.

  • I CHANGED MY MIND. CAN I GET A REFUND?
  • No. You’re free to downgrade or cancel your membership at any time, and you’ll continue to have access until the end of your billing cycle.

    ABOUT COVELLE
  • WHO’S IN CHARGE HERE?
  • We’re just two girls, standing in front of the internet, asking why it’s so #$%!ng difficult to find who you’re looking for online/make friends as a grown up. Then we stopped waiting for it to answer (because, you know, it’s the internet and it can’t respond on it’s own) and built a solution.

  • WHAT’S UP WITH THE FLAMINGOS?
  • They’re social birds, they’re fun, they’re pretty, they’re a little bit weird… so, yeah, they remind us of you 😜 Plus, Sam’s grandma gave her a pair of truly terrifying vintage wooden flamingo earrings, which seemed like a good thing to base a business off of. Scientists have recorded flocks of flamingos that clocked in at over a million birds, which is a great reminder that there’s room for all of us, even when your neck of the interwebs starts to feel a little crowded.

    #FINDYOURFLOCK

    A flamingo in a flock of pigeons is a flamingo who settled.

    You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with, so you better surround yourself with women who will push you and your business to the next level. Be a flamingo in a flock of totally badass flamingos.
