About

Hi, this is Marie 👋🏻

# Who am I?
My name is Marie Denis-Massé and I'm a bootstrapped founder. When I started to work on my own products a few years ago, I realized it was a struggle to find other indie women makers like me to talk to. I thought of creating a place for us so we can find each other, share what we’re working on and learn together.

It started with a simple Telegram group. The first members were women I personally reached out to. We were chatting, helping each other and having fun while progressing together.

Our community has grown since then. But my mission is still the same today: make something simple and useful for women, where everyone who supports us is welcome.

# What is Women Make?
Women Make is a community for women entrepreneurs and makers. It is a safe place to meet, find support, get feedback, help each other out, share their journey, celebrate wins together.

But it's more than that. With Women Make, I want to put women at the forefront by highlighting their stories and promoting their work in ways that don't always happen in a male-dominated field.

You can signup here and subscribe to our newsletter here.




# What do I spend my time on?
What I call "day to day work":
- Moderating our Telegram group
- Animating our Twitter account: share news related to women and diversity in general, share our members' work like launches, blog posts, products updates, publications, etc.
- Sending the weekly newsletter
- Helping/advising some of our members in private conversations
- Reaching out to the members who might be a bit shy and giving them the confidence to participate in the community
- Putting women at the forefront: for example, when one of our members launches a product I pin a message in our Telegram group + write a tweet with @women_make_ + RT that member's tweet + add it our PH collection (if it's a Product Hunt launch). That's the very least I do for every woman launching.

Sometimes I also take care of special events like our 30 Day Challenge which was a big amount of extra work, or I organize remote meetups for our members.

That's actually a full-time job.

# Why supporting me?
This community is free so everyone can join, whatever your financial situation is. However, I put a lot of time and efforts in this project. Basically, by financially supporting me you're allowing me to keep going with Women Make. You're also contributing to make women more visible.
