Top 7 Slack Communities for Women Entrepreneurs

Share this:

Slack is a great app for communicating. It includes private chat and group messaging. Typically, the app has been used for internal communication for start-ups and recently, larger enterprises.

However, Slack is also an excellent tool to join online communities and expand your networking circle. You can learn more about Slack here.

If you are a solopreneur, then you probably have experienced how isolating working alone can be. But for women starting out their own business, who are statistically fewer than men, and statistically more likely to close their company than their male counterpart – it can be even harder.

Having connections to other entrepreneurs can be pivotal to your success. Other entrepreneurs can celebrate your successes, help you get through a challenging week, send you referrals or teach you new business and mindset skills.

If you’re looking for more freelance opportunities, client referrals, virtual or in-person events, and networking opportunities with other women entrepreneurs, then joining these 7 Slack communities is A MUST!
