Attention Capital Acquires Girlboss, the Networking Media Platform

Published

on

LOS ANGELES — Attention Capital announced today that it is acquiring Girlboss, a leader in the women’s media space best known for the power of its community and its ability to connect and convene millennial women.

The Girlboss brand was born out of the runaway success of founder and CEO Sophia Amoruso’s best-selling book #GIRLBOSS, which has sold more than 500,000 copies since it was published in 2014.

The book’s premise—that entrepreneurship is a way of life, both professionally and personally, that we should learn from our mistakes and take big risks—resonated with millions of women around the world who became the earliest members of Girlboss’ passionate global community.

Since its launch in 2017, the Girlboss media platform has expanded to include a digital professional network (dubbed “the LinkedIn for women”), an award-winning podcast network with 21M+ downloads, and sold-out events including the bi-annual Girlboss Rally, which has brought together women from 30 countries and 230 cities.

The company’s executive team will continue to scale its partnerships business to connect brands with the Girlboss community and tap into the experience of Attention Capital’s leadership in growing platforms for brands, including Snap, FOX, Palantir, TIME and VICE.

“Girlboss is an internationally known brand that is redefining what it means to be entrepreneurial—it’s not just starting your own business, it’s taking a risk, looking for that next role, making a career switch and taking a step into the unknown,” said Ashlyn Gentry, co-founder and managing partner of Attention Capital.

“Millions of women feel more comfortable going on this journey because they know they have Sophia and the global Girlboss community right there with them. The loyalty and passion that this brand captures makes it a massive market opportunity, and at Attention Capital we’re looking forward to working with the team on Girlboss’ expansion.”

“Girlboss is built on the idea of powering growth through community,” said Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of Girlboss. “The Girlboss movement’s viral success makes evident that women are more successful if they have access to each other and can share their experiences. We are thrilled to supercharge Girlboss’ growth by tapping into Attention Capital’s deep-rooted expertise in building and scaling brands.”

Another LGBTQ+ Nightlife Destination Has Fallen Victim to the Pandemic

WEST HOLLYWOOD (L.A. Magazine) — Rage nightclub has been a destination for LGBTQ+ nightlife in the bustling Santa Monica Boulevard corridor of West Hollywood for decades. Now, nearly 40 years after first opening its doors, the club has announced it has permanently closed, yet another local business to collapse amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rage nightclub management lays some portion of the blame on their landlord, Monte Overstreet. The club’s now-former general manager, Ron Madrill, told Q Voice News that rent for the location was already “very high” prior to operations shutting down in March. He says he believes an impasse over rent payments may have contributed to Rage’s closure.

Overstreet also reportedly owns the space formerly occupied by neighboring bar Flaming Saddles Saloon, which also announced […]

HOLLYWOOD (KTLA) — Workers rallied Friday outside a Ralphs store in Hollywood where 21 people have tested positive for the coronavirus.

‘Stay Put, Order In’ and Dine With Friends on Zoom, Says Mayor

Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — WeHo is home to some of the best restaurants in the world and our community members are used to gathering around restaurant tables and enjoying meals together. Now, there’s an opportunity to, instead, gather around kitchen tables at home and enjoy a meal (or many!) while supporting our local restaurants.

“One of the worst things about the Safer At Home directive is being disconnected from friends, neighbors, and the city around us,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “Don’t be alone if you don’t have to be – take advantage of the technology out there and invite a friend to Zoom in for Ziti or share some Farfalle over FaceTime.”

Mealtime is a wonderful opportunity to connect with friends, family, and loved ones using virtual teleconferencing technology, while partaking in your favorite delivered or takeout food.

City Encourages Residents to Support Local Restaurants During Safer At Home Orders

Many West Hollywood restaurants remain open and are offering takeout, curbside, and delivery meals, which are sensitive to social distancing during the emergency. The City of West Hollywood and the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to offer a directory of “Stay Put, Order In” eateries in West Hollywood, which is accessible by visitingwww.weho.org/coronavirus (click the “Stay Put, Order In” link!) or www.wehochamber.com/dinein. This list is updated daily.

“We need to start hanging out together, and talking, and seeing each other again. So, why not plan to #WeHoDinnerConnect this week – maybe Saturday at 8 p.m.? Or Sunday at 7 p.m.? Or even just 15 minutes of screen-to-screen gossip,” said Mayor D’Amico. “And you don’t have to cook a thing… local restaurants have meals and menus tailored to take-away choices and they’re ready to send food over to your house or make arrangements for you to pick it up.”

If picking up food, remember to wear face coverings, which are required to enter essential businesses.
