A Globally Spotted Platform

"At the end of April we will be launching of the first part of our offering - a social amplification and discovery platform for female-led enterprises. The goal of the amplification platform which marries Hootsuite's social media management & Thunderclap's Crowdspreaking functionality is to champion more visibility for women-led enterprises worldwide by enabling them to gain access to wider 'networks' of supporters (beyond just friends and family) and through these broader audiences.

Adjacent to the platform, we have also launched a Global Spotters Network inviting a curating list of individuals (journalists, bloggers, influencers, entrepreneurs, celebrities) already actively involved in empowering women entrepreneurs and engaged in raising their profiles."
