About Us

We’re your source for all things entrepreneurial.

LEAP for Women understands the unique value of women-owned businesses.

We’re passionate about fostering their growth by offering authentic resources and inspiration on how to navigate the entrepreneurial waters so that women can set their own standards for success.

The LEAP community is here to inspire, encourage, and support women through all stages of their entrepreneurial journeys.

Our Origin Story
Sometimes, when you see a vision, you can’t UN-see it.
Emily had been running her consulting firm for several years, and by most accounts, she was a small-business success story. She had grown her staff from a one-woman show in a spare bedroom to an office with several employees and a long list of happy clients.

She started to wonder how to give back… A scholarship? Free coaching? Pro-bono services to nonprofits? Those were all great, but Emily envisioned something with a bigger impact.

She had always been passionate about encouraging other women to make the leap and pursue their entrepreneurial dreams, just the way she had been encouraged along the way by other supportive women business owners.

I had a few girlfriends, who just happened to be business owners, that I could call when I had ‘silly’ questions or just needed to vent when I felt frustrated. I credit part of our success today on those friendships.
Emily’s journey was filled with encouragement, guidance, and down-to-earth advice from fellow women entrepreneurs.

She felt incredibly lucky to have been surrounded by so many supportive small-business owners, and she wondered:

What would that look like if every woman had that kind of support?
And in November of 2015, LEAP for Women was launched. Our passion and drive is focused on giving female entrepreneurs access to a rubber-meets-road tips, tools and advice, plus access to a safe, supportive, collaborative community of like-minded women.

About Feliza David, Creative Director


Think of Feliza as LEAP’s very own Don Draper, except without the hard partying. (The only thing she binges on is Netflix.) From tool reviews to learning modules to eye-catching graphics, Feliza probably had her hand in it.

She loves LEAP because:

It’s a safe, collaborative space that supports the unique needs of female entrepreneurs.

Feliza lives in Indiana with her husband, two dogs, one cat, and the occasional goldfish. When she’s not writing, drawing, or reading, she’s probably sleeping.
