Meet Your Director: Jasmin Brand, Brazen Dallas-Fort Worth
Brazen Global is excited to introduce Jasmin Brand, the new Director of Brazen Dallas-Fort Worth!
I started my first business by accident, really. I was laid off and not sure what my next career move would be. I started consulting and landed my first client. For the first time in my professional life, I experienced what true freedom felt like and quickly realized that I could never go back to working in a corporate setting ever again. I was a business owner and proud of it! The sky was my only limit and if I worked really hard, my entrepreneurial dreams could come true.
It’s been a decade since that very first client, but I can still remember the excitement. It feels like it was yesterday.
Despite the challenges that come with starting a business, there is something powerful about not having a corporate glass ceiling when it comes to achieving your aspirations. Over the last ten years, it’s been my mission to help other women feel this freedom too.
Throughout my different business ventures, I have attended my fair share of networking events and have joined countless organizations and groups dedicated to supporting women in business. While I met some incredible people and learned new things, it always felt like there was still something missing for me.
The instant I learned about Brazen, I knew that I had to be involved in some way and that Texas women needed this incredible organization now more than ever.
Brazen is unlike anything that I have ever been a part of. Finally, an organization for women that proudly and boldly leads with a “business first” approach. And this is exactly what has been missing here in Dallas-Fort Worth.
I’ve witnessed an uptick in the number of women starting businesses in the Metroplex, which is exciting. Women are increasingly feeling inspired and empowered to create businesses and become CEOs. But there comes a point in your journey when you’re ready to move past the “honeymoon” phase with your company and get down to business. That moment when success is truly calling your name and you’re ready to take your company to the next level. You need more than inspiration and empowerment to make this happen. Brazen is the solution.
As the CEO of Launch DFW, a Texas based digital media company on a mission to celebrate and support the North Texas startup community, I know firsthand the brilliance and sheer fortitude that Texas businesswomen possess. It’s not a coincidence that the Lone Star State is leading the way nationally when it comes to the number of women-owned businesses starting every year. The time is now to help these women succeed in a big way.
I am excited to see the impact that Brazen will have, not just with female entrepreneurs, but with the entire community in general. It’s time for Dallas-Fort Worth to get Brazen. Join us!

Brazen Announces Expansion to Six Cities
It’s a big day at Brazen.
After growing in St Louis for four years, the time has come to expand our programs and services into six new markets: Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Worth and Philadelphia. To the women entrepreneurs in these new Brazen cities and beyond – we are thrilled to meet you!
We have worked in the entrepreneurship space for over 20 years combined, in academic entrepreneurship environments and serving as coaches, mentors, speakers and investors. At various points in our careers, we each became increasingly aware of the incredible ways that women innovate. It was also clear that they faced unique and meaningful challenges.
In our hometown of St. Louis, women entrepreneurs were facing significant challenges. Our region consistently ranked among the lowest in the country in terms of growth and economic clout of local women business owners. So, like many women entrepreneurs, we decided to do something about it. We set out to develop a program that would go beyond the monthly speaker series and explore topics that would engage women business owners at a deeper, more actionable level.
Somewhere along the way, we realized that we were facing the same highs and lows that the women we serve experience every day: the highs of new customers, new team members, new investors, and the lows of our website breaking, the bank account getting a little low, and the fears and concerns that keep us up at night. This entrepreneurial journey is not for the faint of heart!
We are sisters on this adventure with you, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Brazen is the organization for women on this terrifying and exhilarating journey. There is power in coming together with other women entrepreneurs to celebrate each other on the days you’re at the top of the mountain and encourage each other on the days you wonder how you’ll keep climbing. We are more Brazen together. And we will never lose sight of that.
There is power in coming together with other women entrepreneurs…We are more Brazen together.
These are our core principles at Brazen, and our promise to you:
1 – GROWTH SEEKING – We will always focus our services on “growth seeking” women entrepreneurs looking to take their companies further. We will not place exclusionary labels like “high growth” or “tech” on our participation requirements. We don’t care what label you choose to wear, sisters. If you’re looking to kick things into the next gear, we want to help you get there.
2 – BUSINESS FOCUSED – There are many organizations that help professionals ask for a promotion or negotiate a raise. These are all important skills, to be sure. But we stay true to helping you answer the scary questions that keep women business owners and CEOs up at night. We offer business focused content, including core strategies and nuts-and-bolts tactics for growing your business.
3 – INTERSECTIONAL FEMINISM – We welcome all who identify as women and all intersections of life that they bring to the table. Period.
4 – CONTINUOUS, IMMERSIVE PROGRAMMING – We know the feeling: you’ve just attended a great event and want to keep the fire going. But then you return to CEO island, feeling as lonely and on your own as ever. Brazen connects you to programs and a membership network that helps you feel supported 24/7/365.
5 – HIGHLY CUSTOMIZED, HYPER-NICHE PROGRAMS – You are a unique woman, running a unique business at a unique stage of growth, looking to take things to the next level. A cookie-cutter approach to programming isn’t going to help you get there. We provide you with programs and content that feel hyper-relevant to YOU and YOUR business, in an affordable and accessible way. And if you’re not in one of our new Brazen cities? We have a place for you in our Virtual Growth Groups.
6 – GLOBAL NETWORK – This journey is hard as hell. We want to connect you with a tribe of sister CEOs both where you live and beyond your geographical boundaries. With other women who GET YOU and have your back. We can learn from one another in a way that cuts through the noise and gets right to business. There is a world of women entrepreneurs who are waiting to connect, help you with your business challenges and hope you might help them with a few of theirs.
We are ready to keep growing Brazen right alongside you as women entrepreneurs ourselves — attending our own events, joining Growth Groups, asking questions online and connecting with other women CEOs.
Along our journey, we’ve learned to do it our way, with no apologies. And we can’t wait for you to join us.
Let’s Be Brazen together.
