FemCity Founder Violette de Ayala Inspires Female Business Owners to Thrive

FemCity Founder Violette de Ayala Inspires Female Business Owners to Thrive in 50 Communities Around the Nation


When Violette de Ayala first envisioned FemCity® some 13 years ago, she knew she was blazing a trail by starting a unique female-empowered business networking group.

As a seasoned entrepreneur who launched her first small business at 22, she admits that she is obsessed with business growth and helping FEMS, the FemCity Members, grow impactful businesses.

Today, she is a successful entrepreneur, motivational speaker, author, and thought leader who is eager to help other women reach their full potential.

Her initial expectation was just to have a group of 20 women in Miami that meet once a month for lunch. Today, there are 20,000 members with a 100,000-person social media reach.

These involved members participate in educational programs, mentorship, networking, community building, and other vital business growth endeavors that help them connect, collaborate and support one another with positivity. “I never envisioned it to be as huge as it is today,” she explained.

After pivoting during the difficult two years of the pandemic, she has reached out to professional women around the country and is proud to reveal that 10 new chapters are in the works.

“I personally strive to create innovative resources, platforms, and webinars so that each FemCity member can create the business and life you envision, all within balance, prosperity, and happiness,” de Ayala explains.

“I know what it’s like to start a business, not knowing which way to go, and feeling alone during the process,” she said, “and I want other female entrepreneurs to always feel supported.”

Before she started FemCity, de Ayala was frustrated with the numerous networking groups in her community and everything she discovered seemed so cold, detached, and lacking community spirit – which is why she created FemCity®.

“We have a team of leading FEMS who create local communities catering to women looking for an abundance of support, consistent uplifting vibes, and a community of women inspiring endless possibilities,” she explained

“I want to help cultivate connections and success for each and every member of FemCity.”

Each FemCity community hosts monthly business workshops and social events with engaging curricula and innovative workshops with diversity and positivity as its additional focus.

This formidable international women’s business group represents more than 50 business communities in the U.S. and Canada and is a virtual community for members in Europe, Latin America, and India.

What does the future look like for FemCity? “The FemCity aim,” she explained, “is to help more than 1 million women through its program, platform, and diverse community. So please check us out and join us.”
