250+ Female-Founded Companies You Need to Know

Shout it from the rooftops: The future is female-founded.

businesswoman using phone

The people behind the brands you choose matter. Historically, women have generally had less access to generational wealth, and the income gap between the sexes remains stark well into the 21st century. When you shop at companies founded and owned by women, you are doing your part to fight back against systemic sexism. Regardless of your gender identity, opening your wallet for more female-owned businesses is an excellent show of support and solidarity.

Supporting female entrepreneurs is the first baby step toward closing that unfortunate pay gap, but how can you actively seek out women-owned businesses to begin seamlessly integrating them into your commerce habits? Lucky for you, we are here to help. 

We have combed through the internet and found hundreds of female-founded companies, the majority of which are also sharply focused on sustainability, empowerment, and ethical trade practices. Check out our list and switch your allegiance from huge corporate brands to female-founded companies that truly care about their customers.
