You can search and browse local female merchants on the Gazelle

The Gazelle is an online marketplace for local female entrepreneurs to post their products. The marketplace connects shoppers to the products in their area! We built this platform to showcase a variety of products made and sold by local businesses in a convenient search directory. At the point of purchase, you will be taken to the merchant’s e-commerce site for an easy checkout.

Before having a shop on The Gazelle marketplace, you need to be a ‘gazelle’ in Project Gazelle.

Project Gazelle provides a number of services to ensure that we can enhance basic business development services. Our combination of advance coaching, unique training and variety of mentoring opportunities ensures that each business developer that is a part of our program receives the services they require to build a successful venture.
