About Leg UP
Everybody needs a leg up in the beginning of starting a business. My big break came when Oprah named Spanx a “Favorite Thing”. We at Spanx want to pay it forward and give other amazing women entrepreneurs their leg up!
Because of our amazing fans, we now have a community of millions we reach through the Spanx catalog, spanx.com and social media. With Leg Up®, we use these channels to support female entrepreneurs and their businesses/products.
Leg Up Prize Package:
- A feature in the Spanx catalog — reaching approximately 1 million fans
- A feature on spanx.com — including the homepage
- Multiple features via Spanx social media and the Spanx blog
- Lucky Red Backpack (the same kind Sara used to start Spanx) — we hope it brings you huge success and that you know we've always got your back…(and your butt) :-)
- Opportunity to have a private chat with Sara to ask your most pressing entrepreneurial questions
- Spanx does not profit in any way. Our only hope is that another woman gets great exposure and her much-deserved leg up!
