Lashawn Dreher is the founder and creator of the BlkWomenHustle® app, a revolutionary networking application for Black women entrepreneurs, professionals, and creatives. The app enhances social capital, strengthens economic empowerment, and supports careers and business drives especially for Black women.
Lashawn’s main purpose for building the real-time web app was based on her desire to see an effective and efficient system where women will connect with the people and opportunities they seek. Culturally recognized as the Networking Maven®, Dreher debuted the app in the theme of Issa Rae’s Insecure® television series, giving Black Women nostalgia and piqued interest to support the new venture.
Speaking about the blkWomenHustle app, Lashawn revealed, “BlkWomenHustle is a networking platform, so I wanted to remain in alignment with our mission to create relevant and impactful experiences for us all, no matter where we’re placed in the world. The app is a centralized space that’s shifting the trajectory of our approaches to fostering genuine relationships and professional growth in unison.”
With an intuitive interface and user-friendly design, the BlkWomenHustle App allows users to harness the power of networking and professional growth in the palms of their hands. Its notable features include support for crowdfunding campaigns, supplier diversity opportunities, real-time collaboration connections, and a corporate and freelance job board.
“There are so many events and opportunities available across all of these social media outlets and platforms that they’re easy to miss. This app is the solution,” Lashawn stated. “We’ve eliminated the time-consuming research and consolidated information to make professional growth convenient.”
In addition to its progressive functionalities, the BlkWomenHustle App enables users to access and stream original content, engage with corporate partners for business opportunities, and discover an array of experiences through the nationwide event calendar. Users can access the app with a monthly or annual subscription.
