Female Founder Amy Will started her first e-commerce business at the age of 24 years old with a $100 Etsy gift card, and has since launched 4 successful brands. Before starting Girl Gang, Will held the role of Marketing Director at Tower Paddle Boards (of Shark Tank fame), having also started as their first employee. Will graduated from California Lutheran University with a Major in Communications, and was born and raised in Ventura. She moved to Los Angeles in 2014 to scale her first ecommerce business and establish a centralized office space.
Currently age 32, Will’s latest and very notable brand, Girl Gang, was created out of a want to connect and inspire women. She started by launching ‘Girl Gang the Label’ as a merchandise line with their flagship product, a “Support Your Local Girl Gang” sweatshirt. After a positive response from initial customers layered with social media buzz and organic influencer following, she decided to create a full line of products. To date the brand has secured retail partnerships with Nordstrom, The Beverly Hills Hotel, and boutique fitness studios across the US.
Founded in Los Angeles, CA by a female entrepreneur on a mission to inspire women to reach their highest potential, together. ‘Girl Gang the Label’ started with a signature collection of the “Support Your Local Girl Gang” sweatshirts and has since grown to seasonal collections that customers can shop via their online store, girlgangthelabel.com. They recently created a collaboration with Peanuts exclusively for Nordstrom, established a retail partnership with The Beverly Hills Hotel, and created an eco-friendly sweat set with the female-owned athleisure brand, Nourish Sweat Soul. A percentage of all profits are also donated to charities that focus on female education, health, and empowerment.
As a result of the social community that was built around ‘Girl Gang the Label,’ Amy Will launched a podcast in 2019 as a brand extension, ’Girl Gang the Podcast,’ where she interviews inspiring and creative women on their brands, projects and endeavors. Marie Claire featured them as “33 Best Podcasts of 2020,” (2020 Marie Claire Link) paired with various other Industry and peer recognitions. In 2020, this also branched off into an IG Live Series, expanding their audience reach.
