Our Brand Story
The female sandpiper is well known for taking the lead, and establishing and defending its territory, but that is not the only reason we adopted it as our moniker. We were also attracted to the idea of taking flight, together. Our goal is to sustain a space where driven and visionary woman entrepreneurs come together and have the opportunity to soar.Learn More
