W.E. Da’Cruz is a thought leader in global entrepreneurship who continues to grow businesses through authenticity and advocacy for helping people across the world.
Aspiring diplomat turned businesswoman, she co-founded the Virtual Global Consultant (VGC) Group in 2016, a digital marketing and project management agency that handles the back-end operations of various companies all over the world. She started the company after struggling to find a job after graduate school and grew it to over a quarter million in revenue in her first year.
W.E. is responsible for helping to generate millions of dollars a year in at-will donations and business sales for her clients, with a large concentration in Africa.
Through her company, W.E. has created global employment in underserved communities, hiring more than 30 people spanning across five continents around the world including Kenya, Ghana, Philippines, Canada, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and across the United States. She has successfully built and managed digital systems and trained her employees in the areas of administration, design, development, editorial and more in less than a year.
Ultimately, she envisions the VGC Group as a leader in championing a global consciousness, promoting an understanding that everything businesses and brands do have a global impact – from the executive level to civilians on the ground.
In her spare time, she continues to research and write thought-provoking articles on bridging global communication and the impacts of digital technologies and systems on homegrown businesses and the labor force in countries around the world. Becoming an authority in this space, her goal is to be appointed as a Ghanaian-American advisor to heads of government on socioeconomic issues someday.
As a mother of two, W.E. is passionate about the intersection of motherhood and entrepreneurship. She recently developed “Birthing Babies, Building Business,” her flagship course to help women manage and cope up with the demands of family life and business.
W.E. obtained two full-tuition scholarships; she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and a minor in Business Administration degree and a dual master’s degree in Public Administration, Diplomacy and International Relations from Seton Hall University. She sits on the board of the United Nations Associations Greater Detroit Chapter and is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated.
The 28-year-old New Jersey native currently resides in Detroit, Michigan with her husband and two children.
