Minneapolis-based female entrepreneurs, including those in the home decor and design sphere, are shaking up the local business scene with the new Woman-Owned Wednesday initiative. Launching on May 29 and continuing through the summer on the last Wednesday of each month, the program offers female-run businesses—including Brooke Voss Interior Design, J’Atelier, Story & Teller, Studio BV, The Foundry Home Goods, ŪMEI, Montaggio, and Vivid Home—the opportunity to promote and uplift one another. “We believe in the power of community support and collaboration to drive meaningful change,” says Rachel Cafferty, founder of lifestyle boutique Story & Teller and one of the organizers of Woman-Owned Wednesday. “Rallying behind local women-led businesses can not only create economic growth in our city but also inspire future generations of female entrepreneurs to chase their dreams.”

As the inaugural Woman-Owned Wednesday approaches, anticipation is high in the North Loop neighborhood. In fact, the participating businesses are hopeful the first event will spark interest in other communities and begin a larger movement across the Twin Cities and beyond. Cafferty says, “This event isn’t just about enjoying a day or night on the town—it’s a celebration of the resilience, creativity, and ingenuity of women.”

With extended hours, exclusive promotions, and special events by participating businesses, the program promises an exciting array of offerings for visitors to explore. The directory of establishments ranges from dining and beauty services to fashion and fitness. For a full list of participating businesses, visit womanownedmn.com.
