In the spirit of International Women's Day, iKadre would like to highlight two remarkable women entrepreneurs who need your financial support.

Leah Weiss and Skylyte are combating an urgent challenge. As we navigate the complexities of modern workplaces, burnout has emerged as a pervasive issue, undermining the well-being and productivity of teams everywhere. Skylyte, under Leah's leadership, is at the forefront of combating workplace burnout, serving as a vital Chief Wellbeing Officer for organizations, whether they operate remotely, in a hybrid manner, or onsite.

Peggy Strauss is the mastermind behind Mojito's Cafe, a family establishment she's carried on for her late brother, the master chef. Mojito is an establishment in the Kailua neighborhood that offers a local spot for gathering and enjoying fabulous Latin-inspired Hawaiian-fusion cuisine. It is also a location for activities like art and dancing lessons. Peggy would like to work on franchising the Mojito brand, and your support would help her close the funding gap she's experiencing to pursue that work.

Women entrepreneurs face significant barriers yet demonstrate unparalleled resilience, innovation, and leadership. These entrepreneurs drive economic growth and champion social change while battling the systemic challenges that limit their access to essential resources and opportunities.

Here's where your support can create transformative change:

  • Empowerment: Your contribution empowers women-owned businesses by providing them with the resources and mentorship they need to thrive. This support dismantles barriers to success and fosters an environment where women's ventures can flourish.

  • Innovation: Women entrepreneurs are a powerhouse of innovation and creativity. By investing in their businesses, you're directly fueling diverse industries with fresh perspectives and pioneering solutions.

  • Economic Impact: Supporting women-owned businesses transcends promoting equality; it's a strategic investment in our economy. These businesses are crucial for job creation, community development, and economic growth.

  • Inclusivity: Your donation is a step towards a more equitable economy, ensuring women entrepreneurs have equal opportunities to succeed. This is about building a future where the marketplace reflects the diversity of our society.

Skylyte, Mojito, and initiatives like it are not asking for a handout but a partnership to create meaningful, sustainable change. The gender funding gap remains a stark reality, with women entrepreneurs consistently underfunded compared to their male counterparts. Your support can bridge this gap, providing the operational capital critical for these ventures to start, scale, and succeed.

Your contribution, no matter its size, will have a tangible impact on the lives of women entrepreneurs and the communities they uplift. This is an invitation to be part of a collective effort to shape a more inclusive, prosperous future spearheaded by visionary leaders like Leah Weiss.
