Startup Grind is one of the biggest communities of entrepreneurs in partnership with Google for Startups. Our mission is to help every entrepreneur in the world. We do so by hosting a monthly recurring event to inspire, educate, and connect entrepreneurs.
Rain Vallot and Sherin Dawud are two inspiring leaders joining us for a Black Leaders Month Startup Grind event. In this fireside, we will be discussing mission driven growth and their organization - Power Pump Girls Inc, a social impact club that empowers women to connect and serve. Power Pump Girls focuses on three key areas: Rally, Educate, & Mobilize. We want to dive into their origin story and learn how they took an idea, validated through action, that women have simply been kept out of the conversation for too long and the inequities are piling up. Their success is deeper than social media hacks, great photoshoots, or powerful events - It's a mission-driven approach that keeps PowerPumpGirls growing and we're excited to learn from those experiences.
Sherin Dawud and Raina Vallot, founded Power Pump Girls, Inc. in 2017 with the belief that women are better together. They set out to create intentional gatherings for women to build relationships that ultimately impacted culture. From hosting social brunches to advocating for women’s rights legislation, the organization’s resume is as diverse and unconventional as its founders. As the Power Pump Girls sisterhood grew, Sherin and Raina began taking on speaking engagements and hosting opportunities to discuss topics of authenticity, community building, social impact strategy, diversity and inclusion, and more. Now considered thought leaders and social entrepreneurs, Sherin and Raina continue to challenge the status quo and empower others along the way.
