Women’s ReciproCITY

Experience the Power of Women in Business Through Reciprocity

People get most of their lucky breaks in life through “the strength of weak ties” – i.e., through casual acquaintances and people they don’t know very well. The reason for this is that we travel in the same circles as our good friends. They know most of the same people, the same opportunities, and the same resources as we do. But when we stumble across a relative stranger, they travel in completely different circles. They are exposed to different resources, ideas, and people than we are. They might be able to connect us with resources and people that we would have never otherwise encountered.

When you give to other people, chances are they will give back. Reciprocity is one of the strongest forms of human influence. If you want someone to help you, the best way is to help them first.

Join us on November 19, 2015 to generate a series of lucky breaks. For three hours you will be paired with different groups of women. Each of you will state a personal or professional goal that you have. The other members of your group will suggest connections and resources that will help you fulfill your request. It is then up to you to follow up in the coming days and weeks. 

Make sure to come prepared with your goals in mind so that you can share with as many people as possible. It is estimated that there is an average of 3 solutions generated for every request.

Innovative Women Hacking The Startup Life

Innovative Women Hacking The Startup Life

This was the second in the series of conversations with innovative women titled “Hacking the Startup Life”, hosted by Luminary Central, Crea7ive Interactive Advertising, and Pipeline Brickell. Its aim was to engage the panelists in a discussion regarding common obstacles women entrepreneurs face, and what methods they developed to overcome them.

The entrepreneurs involved in this session were Birame Sock from FlyScan, Dawn Sole from Pluck N’ File, and Tamar Lucien from CanUStart. The event was masterfully moderated by Luminary Central‘s own Christine Johnson.

The event kicked off with interesting facts from each of the founders that shed some light on how they now face obstacles. Dawn used to play football for an all boys team, Tamar has family gingerbread house building competitions that encourage the demolition of other’s structures, and Birame responds to an irrate note with the gift of a can opener.

Paula Celestino – “Backdoor To My Friends’ Closets”

Paula Celestino – “Backdoor To My Friends’ Closets”

“I always felt that I never had anything to wear, yet my closet was always full. All of my friends felt this way too.

I started to look into it further and found out that about 80% of people’s clothing were either donated or disposed of after one or two wears.

This is where the idea came from. I asked myself “what if I had the opportunity to exchange my clothes with not only my friends but also friends of friends?”

I’d have a backdoor to my friends’ closets and they would have access to mine. A much more efficient way to consume fashion.”

Paula Celestino and her partner Christopher Rivera founded Kloset Karma to allow young women to continuously update their wardrobe by trading articles of clothing with other women, thereby extending the life cycle of their purchase and minimizing expenses.
