About

Nek.awa simplifies women's beauty routine & provides moisture, nutrients, & shine. 

Your support will help us to scale production and increase marketing so that more women can awaken their natural beauty with our simple and natural product. This includes partnering with a manufacturer that meets all requirements and then beginning to work on creating a value chain that will allow us to work with nonprofits in Senegal to ensure that the women who harvest, collect, and process the shea butter are also positively impacted by our business. This is a social entrepreneurial venture as it is not just about making a profit, but finding ways to give back to Senegal, and more specifically women who have not been afforded the same privileges that the founder Awa had growing up in the U.S.

The nek.awa butter is an all natural unrefined shea based product that was created for women to use on their skin and hair.

Risks and challenges

With any new ventures, we know risks exist. Our two biggest concerns are below:

Concern 1: Importing the shea butter from West Africa

Response 1: We plan to create a value chain to help us control import of Shea specifically for our product while also helping the farmers and producers of the shea butter. We will keep constant communication with current supplier and continue forecasting effectively.

Concern 2: Reaching potential customers

Response 2: Allocate at least 20% of revenue on marketing Initiate creative marketing strategy. This is also why we are doing the Kickstarter so that we can boost our marketing and reach more women.
