A little about us
A little about us
We love weddings and house warmings and baby showers and all the celebrations that go along with each of those things. We love the traditions that let us celebrate the personal milestones in our lives, but we want something to celebrate professional successes as well. If you can ask for a gravy boat when you're getting married, you should be able to ask for stuff when you're starting a business too.
Shine Registry is a tool for start-up founders to ask for what they need when they are starting their businesses, gives their communities an opportunity to show that support in meaningful ways, and creates a new kind of tradition to celebrate women’s professional milestones the same way personal milestones are celebrated.
We're building, learning, and hoping to grow. Scroll down to learn more about the founders we're currently working with!
