The Collective Thirty One community was started by Natalie Yates (formerly with BBVA/Compass and now a photographer and strategic financial advisor for female start-ups) and Whitney Rowell (a brand strategy consultant and founder of Miracle Milkookies) when we both discovered that there is SUCH a need for a local platform for female entrepreneurs to support each other and collaborate to reach our full potential. We’re excited for this community to be a voice, a platform, and a support system for female entrepreneurs everywhere.
