Future Girl Corp, Brilliant clients, Nasty Woman exhibition, Yegna & some unsolicited advice (B+A Bulletin #128)

Hey team,

Happy early International Women’s Day from us and some of team Future Girl Corp. Together B+A and FGC are cooking up a plan to produce a bunch more entrepreneurs and CEOs across the U.K, then across the world obvs. We’re all about inspiring, but more importantly, supporting future leaders with tangible business tools. Nice.

Bulletin #128 let’s do this…

B+A Brilliance

In no particular order, here are just some of the clients we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years. Sharon Ong. Tesa Aragones. Anna Strong(wo)man. Margaret McDonald.

Keri Perkins & many many more. Thanks for shaping the above cultural, for-profit and charitable organisations we love to work with.

B+A Books etc.

In our business-planning masterclass today, Rosy brought Mushpit magazine to our attention. Former Fashion Editor Bertie Brandes and stylist Charlotte Roberts founded the magazine in 2011. It’s confident, satirical, silly and also fiercely political in places. No adverts, premium quality on a shoestring budget + a very smart approach to brand collabs. Strong work.

B+A Big Up

Ethiopian girl band Yegna has developed into an authentic and impactful youth brand despite losing funding from the UK government’s DFiD after it decided there were ‘more effective ways’ to invest international aid. The news of the funding cut was celebrated by the Daily Mail, which led a campaign against aid being spent on a ‘girl band’. We’re glad to see that Girl Effect continued to fund this innovative and unconventional solution and it’s thriving.

B+A Babble

Creative Debuts have joined forces with Nasty Women New York, Amsterdam, Lisbon, North East, and London to celebrate the work of international feminist artists.
