International Women’s Day – Embracing Diversity

At the Discover App we believe that true empowerment comes from embracing diversity. Our platform is home to a myriad of independent businesses, and among them, numerous ventures are led by inspiring women entrepreneurs. This International Women’s Day, we’d like to shine a spotlight on some of the women who have overcome challenges, broken barriers, and contributed to the vibrant communities within our locations.

Here are a couple of examples to illustrate the incredible women entrepreneurs we’re proud to be showcasing on the Discover App:
I Luv Me Most, Kendal: Iluvmemost Boutique, home to specialist lagenlook fashion, is based on Finkle Street, Kendal. The shop is run by a wonderful woman who empowers every customer who walks through the door! Expect a warm welcome and a confidence boost whether you’re visiting in store or on the shop’s socials!
Waffle & Co., Saffron Walden: Waffle+Co began their quest to change opinions of the humble waffle back in July 2018 by creating events called Women Who Waffle; the idea was to bring together local women through a love of wine, conversation, and good food – waffles! From a horsebox, to a food van and now to the heart of Saffron Walden in a permanent shop, their entrepreneurial story is inspirational.

Discover these incredible women-led businesses on our app alongside MANY more, and celebrate the diversity of products and services they bring to the market! By supporting women-owned businesses, you actively contribute to a more inclusive and vibrant business landscape.

Did you know that we’re a women-dominated workforce?

Behind the scenes at the Discover App, our workforce proudly reflects the spirit of inclusion. Women are at the forefront, shaping the vision, creativity, and success of our app. From account management roles to comms and every corner of our organisation, we recognize and appreciate the invaluable contributions of the women who make the Discover App a standout platform.
