BasBlue Definition

A Name Steeped In Women’s History

BasBlue (def; a woman having intellectual or literary interests, a bluestocking) is rooted in generations of trailblazers, gathering in studios, shops, and salons for ‘intellectual conversation, witty banter, and to enjoy society in undress.’

About BasBlue

BasBlue Detroit Origins

Detroit is tough, resourceful and proud - a diverse and complex city with an unwavering commitment to community. At the heart of that community are women - women of all ages, backgrounds, ambitions, interests. Women in Detroit are leading. They’re leading when it comes to starting businesses, building careers, starting families, and driving change. It is these women who have made Detroit the number one ranked city in the US for female-led businesses, outpacing all other cities.

It is for these women - past, present and future - that we have created our nonprofit organization, BasBlue. Paying homage to the paths paved by women before us, and forging new pathways for those to come.
Across every aspect of our space and community, BasBlue is dedicated to inclusivity, diversity, and the belief that women are strongest when together.

Welcome, the door is open...
