Entrepreneurship can be isolating. It’s so common for women to feel like imposters, start playing mind games, and convince themselves they don’t have what it takes. Every day, smart, talented women persuade themselves to play it safe.

Collective located in Dubuque, Iowa, Dyersville, Iowa Solon, Iowa Marion, Iowa and Des Moines, Iowa.

Meet Our Founder

Janene King grew up in Kalona, Iowa, with few examples of female entrepreneurs to look up to. She started her career by following the set path, earning her Associates Degree in Business Management before accepting a management role within the Chick-Fil-A franchise. She quickly fell in love with business development and dreamed of someday opening her own store.

Then she met Nate.

Nate co-owned King Bros, Inc., a trucking and distribution company, and he challenged Janene to think bigger. He showed her the unlimited potential of building her own business instead of contributing to someone else’s. After they married, Janene became the VP of Operations for King Bros.

However, as she entered this male-dominated industry, she quickly realized that her need for connection and belonging was not being met. Her friends couldn’t empathize with the sacrifice and hard work that it takes to build a business from the ground up, and at the time, she was the only woman in her company.

Janene noticed that even when attending networking events, women were often competing for space rather than embracing each other’s strengths and gifts. The entrepreneurial journey felt lonely and isolating.

Out of this desire for community, Janene planned a small networking event that drew a dozen driven women who were craving the same community. The energy and excitement were contagious, and Janene knew that she was onto something.

She founded EmpowerHer Co. in 2017, and over the next few years, it grew to serve women throughout Eastern Iowa and beyond. With over a decade of small business management experience, Janene has discovered that being connected to like-minded women is essential to fostering business growth and success.

Janene is passionate about helping women to find the support they need to build something great from the ground up. As she reaches new levels of success in her own small business, the EmpowerHer Co. community continues to find new ways to serve women near and far, helping them to build smart and own their power.
