It's okay to have questions! We're here to answer them.
~Inquiries are always welcome, mama~
what are y'all about?
Get to know us here.
Where does the money go?
#bossbabesATX is an entirely community-funded nonprofit. All of the website costs, administrative, management and event costs are covered by ticket sales and sponsorships.
How can I help?
Come to an event, first and foremost! We appreciate your support more than anything. If you have a specific idea in mind, though, please email email@example.com. Or if you're feeling real nice, you can write us a big, fat check, so we can start our entirely women-run creative space. That'd be great, too. (You can also volunteer here.)
How do meets work?
At meets, we invite women to casually come together to chat and collaborate, without the stigmas of typical networking events or the culture of competition. We usually have about three to four vendors, featuring women in the community and their small businesses. We use an hour of the meet for "Babe Announcements," a section of time that gives each woman a minute on the mic to proclaim her passions and ask for jobs/connections/etc.
How do I join #bossbabesATX?
Do you self-identify as a woman? In our eyes, you're already a member! We don't have formal membership. There is no induction ceremony. We want everyone to feel free to reach out to us (or others on social media via our channels), no matter how many functions of ours you may or may not have attended.
For this reason, we only charge a ticket price for meets and some of our events. By paying for these tickets, you are supporting #bossbabesATX, and all of the hard work and effort that goes in to running this organization.
What does your programming look like?
Check it out here.
I want to donate a space. Who do I talk to?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always looking for venues!
Do I have to pay to become a vendor at one of your events?
Nope! We're here for you, and we get that booth fees can be annoying as hell. We don't charge any of our vendors, artists, or any other event crew participants a fee. Want to become a vendor? Email Maureen at email@example.com.
Can you promote my events/business on your platform?
Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll see what we can do.
I've got some badass art/music I want to share! Can I play/vend/showcase my stuff at one of your events?
We're always looking for artists and musicians to collaborate with! We run artist showcases and regularly book bands for some of our meets. Interested? Email email@example.com.
I've seen this Instagram called @bossbabe. Are you affiliated with them?
Nope! Not us. We're an entirely local movement, based in Austin, TX.
How do I get onto your blog?
If you'd like a feature, submit your music/art/work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you accept blog contributors?
We do! We don't currently have a writing staff, and we don't issue assignments, BUT we are always accepting pitches. Let's get you published, girl.
