PROJECT Stories: Women Duos

Project Stories: Women Duos, title centered on dark purple background with animated female symbols in light purple traveling up the left side and down the right side.

Project Stories: Women Duos is a video series created by Kristen and Lindsey Archer of ARCHd. It celebrates the empowering relationships between five women duos who founded and co-own a product-based small business together in Memphis, Tennessee. While each of these stories is unique, there are a lot of commonalities in the way each pair of women empowers each other. In so many ways, their successful businesses are a direct result of their strong bonds.
