Our Humble Beginnings
We began on a hard floor with nothing more than a laptop and a heart full of encouragement to help push women out of their struggles and into accomplishing the dreams that they once believed they couldn’t accomplish. The Propel Lab was a spark that began from our Founder, Jess, who began to assist friends in accessing resources to start their creative businesses in photography, blogging, styling, and even writing.
From there Jess began freelancing with her own talents in writing, editing, and website development. Jess not only helped to discover resources but became a resource for those who needed what they couldn’t afford elsewhere. It later dawned that all of her clientele were mainly women of color who were in need of resources but felt they were inaccessible because of their lack of funding.
In 2018, The Propel Lab Company became officially incorporated and on it’s way to growth and impact for women and their families to end poverty by the creation of creative businesses and industries.
