    A Club Of One's Own

    As a busy New Yorker and former public affairs guru, Audrey Gelman had changed her clothes in her fair share of Starbucks bathrooms and done pre-event makeup in many a Sephora. She had her big idea two years ago: what if city women had a third place, besides the office and home, not just to primp but to network and plot the rise of the #matriarchy?

    In The Bag

    Melissa Mash heard women's gripes about their bags firsthand while working for leather goods giant Coach, from laptops ruined by spilled water bottles to crushed sunglasses. She vowed to create a perfect, intuitive bag for working women, with pockets for every need, a spill-proof exterior, and no gaudy branding. A Wharton MBA and four years later, handbag and accessory startup Dagne Dover has raised a $1.25 million seed round and is set to raise equity financing soon.
