Welcome to POWER!

A Dynamic community of heart-centered women in business devoted to lifting each other up.

We believe in a new way of doing business that embraces inclusivity, authenticity and mutual support. POWER is a place where women entrepreneurs can build businesses and communities in ways that honor their unique needs and gifts.

At POWER, we do networking differently—connections come alive, unique perspectives are shared, and authenticity is celebrated.


POWER is more than just a networking event. It’s an authentic and uplifting community where women entrepreneurs connect, collaborate, and co-create. From kitchen-table conversations that sparked our inception to monthly gatherings that bring more than seventy women together each month, we’re dedicated to being a catalyst for both personal and professional transformation. 

Founded by Erin Vanderkooy in 2015 and now led by Emily Emanuel, POWER has evolved into a thriving community where meaningful impact meets success.
