The Coven creates space for women, non-binary AND TRANS PEOPLE to pursue growth through connection, collaboration and content.
We opened our doors to 150 Founding Members on March 8, 2018- International Women’s Day. These original 150 bound together in the belief that an intersectional space with humans from every industry, age and socioeconomic background could exist in the Twin Cities. Their early support has now grown to 400+ members from finance and law to creative and technology. Our 5-for-1 Community Funded Membership model has allowed us to welcome nearly 140 people from underserved communities at no cost, ensuring socioeconomics is never a barrier for access.
We know that when women, non-binary and trans people have access to economic resources and growth opportunities, they put their successes back into their communities, into education, and into themselves. What we’ve built is an ecosystem of entrepreneurs, organizational leaders, and community activists, who support each other in person and across our digital platforms. Coven members are incubating ideas, starting businesses, and advancing in their careers. Much like our own story, we’re witnessing the magic that happens when like-hearted individuals come together to shine for each other.
In addition to being a creative, comfortable, and safe workspace for women, non-binary and trans folks, The Coven has hosted more than 200 curated events with a focus on developing each member’s whole self through economic empowerment, education, connection, and wellness.
OUR community funded memberships
Part of our mission is to create a more just and equitable community in the Twin Cities. In service of this ambition, we built community funded memberships into The Coven as part of our business model. For every five memberships purchased, we offer a fully-paid for membership to a woman or non-binary individual in our community.
