Local Women-Owned Businesses We Love to Support

Meet 14 YellowDog clients who are OWNING IT in the Colorado business community

It’s National Women’s Day year-round at YellowDog. We have SO much to celebrate as far as women leaders on our team and in our local business community. With Jenny Mulligan at the helm of YellowDog as President and majority owner, we’ve recently gained our Minority/Women Business Enterprise (M/WBE) certification from the City of Denver and the State of Colorado.

We’re in good company. YellowDog couldn’t be more proud of the women-owned businesses we work with. Your enterprises take on many shapes, sizes, flavors, and colors, and it inspires us every day.

Even with all our combined victories, we still have a long way to go to reach parity with men at the ownership level. This is where we find a sense of purpose — to help bold women-owned businesses like these ones shine. Ladies, we’re cheering for you!

Amplify Planners

Amplify Planner

Chelsea Brown and Raeanne Dimick, Co-Founders
This friend duo is changing the printed planner game. They’ve designed a planner notebook that actually works for people’s daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly organizing. In Raeanne’s words, “A planner should be able to grow as you grow and shift as you shift.”
On their online store, you can take a peek at the layouts and even request free sample layouts to try out and see if they work for you.

Chelsea and Raeanne take pride in the fact these planner notebooks are printed and produced locally here on our YellowDog production floor in Denver, CO.

Breakaway Meetings

Kim Carlson and Angela Hesseman, Co-Founders

Meet Kim and Angela— the dynamic duo behind Breakway Meetings. They both spent their careers creating memorable experiences in the event and hospitality industry, but when the pandemic hit in 2020 everything changed. Looking for a new opportunity, they decided to combine their passion and expertise and launch a business creating and selling ultra-customizable branded gift boxes. Geared towards corporate meetings, work conferences, and employee appreciation, call them when you’re looking for a curated gifting experience. Whether it’s a hotel conference room drop or a festively-themed holiday box, they nail it every time.

brindle and oak women-owned businesses

Megan Grose, Founder, and Michelle Sutton, Director
Wedding planning, done beautifully. We love this female business duo not only because they’re clearly dog people (brindle is two-toned fur!) but also because what they do for couples is truly remarkable.
In their words, “Your engagement should be fun, filled with excitement and love. You should go on date nights without having to talk about wedding plans.”
Brindle and Oak + YellowDog
We’ve collaborated on all sorts of fun wedding invitations and projects for Megan and Michelle and their clients. But our recent favorite is the design and install of their storefront signage.

Something creative. And something impactful.”

Opening a Ship Sunshine gift box feels like a barefoot romp through warm grass. And sending one to brighten someone’s day feels just as good. Anna Costello, the founder, found a way to spread joy in a box.

I want to make the concept of “be kind” into an actionable mindset, while having a strong community presence, support local, minority, and women-owned businesses, and also be eco-friendly.”
