What is the Design Counsel?

We’re many things…

We’re lead generators, buzz makers, connectors & collaborators.

We’re story makers, dream launchers, & profile pundits.

And we do it for the love of seeing dreams become reality.

We do it because it’s never been a more exciting nor important time to be a woman in business than right now!

Design Counsel is dedicated to supporting entrepreneurial women by encouraging community engagement, education, collaboration and promotion.

Our directory of entrepreneurial women provides advertising opportunities and, collectively, we help  members of Design Counsel position themselves in the marketplace and find their audience through editorial exposure & brand promotion initiatives.

We make businesses and the amazing ladies behind them visible to marketers, influencers, journalists and consumers.
