ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A women-led startup based in the St. Louis-area is expanding to help women in six other cities. 

Brazen, which is based in Webster Groves, is a membership organization that provides business-focused programming to female CEOs and entrepreneurs of both for-profit and nonprofit companies.

“Doing the first step is oftentimes really hard, but once you do it, you look back and you’re like, 'why did I wait so long,'” said Kim Moos, Founder of Cotton Cuts. ”Why did it take me so long to take the first step, when it was so easy to do in hindsight.”

Moos, whose company is a subscription service for quilters, is one of Brazen’s Clients. She says the confidence, connections and legal counsel she received through Brazen helped her grow her passion into a nationwide business.

The leaders of Brazen said they had to take their own advice in a way and make the leap to grow, just like they are helping other women-led businesses do. Their hope is to reach more women and create a bigger network to draw support for each other.

“We really work to help women understand the technical components of scaling their company as well as feel more confident in thinking bigger and feeling as though she understands the steps she needs to take her company to the next level,” Founder and CEO of Brazen Jennifer Ehlen said.

After helping more than a thousand women in the St. Louis-area, Brazen will expand and have officers in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Worth and Philadelphia.
