In April of 2019, after launching more than 20 publications and hosting more than 120 in-person events, KNOW launched its digital platform for female business owners. Built for those in high-growth mode, the membership became the space for women to align through professional development, accountability, and community.

But we’re not stopping there…In 2020, after recognizing the need for even more connection and through our desire to continue to provide the best opportunities for growth and exposure, KNOW launched its Global Membership. Now any woman regardless of their locale, career, or tenor, can align with the KNOW Women.
