About Her Brand & Co.
Our purpose lies far beyond helping women create and design beautiful and marketable brands. Through our work, digital community, and educational programs, Her Brand & Co. empowers female founders to speak their authentic truths and unapologetically design businesses that they can be proud of.
Our mission is to give female entrepreneurs the freedom and power to live their lives by their own rules.
What started out as a passion project fueled from the desire to support female founders and build a life she dreamed of for herself and her family, our CEO, Jessica Korthuis, created the idea for Her Brand & Co. (formerly Sohuis) while nursing her daughter in the backseat of her car on the way to breakfast. She wanted to curate a place where women could get expert, actionable and practical access to all of the branding and marketing tools they need to tell their unique brand stories.
We envision a world where women are empowered to create wealth for themselves and their families through their entrepreneurial dreams and endeavors.
Our mission is simple – to provide practical and accessible marketing & branding education to give early-stage womenpreneurs the freedom and power to live their lives by their own rules.
“When women have the power to create wealth for themselves and their families, communities thrive and the world just simply works better.”
