“Keys to Success” is a unique program that consists of a digital workshop series and pitch competition designed by women for women to help solve the number one issue facing women minority business owners: access to capital.
Though black women and other minority women make up the fastest growing segment of the women-owned business population, they experience a disproportionate number of barriers to get funding compared to other groups.
We understand the fears and trepidations minority women have when pitching their businesses, speaking to investors, and applying for credit lines or traditional loans.
Keys to Success: Access to Capital will empower participants with the knowledge, tools, and sister support needed to overcome such fears and other barriers.
Our digital workshop series will provide you with online access to three (3) different 45-minute segments.
The segments will quickly prepare you to compete in our contest, apply for a traditional loan, seek alternative financing, and create the perfect business plan.
Additionally, our coaches and experts will address issues like strengthening your financial image, assessing what type of funding you need, and revitalizing your brand.
The entire series costs just $30, and there is no application fee to apply to the pitch competition.
Remember, our goal is to help you prepare for any pitch contest and understand that you have options when seeking capital.
You must complete all three (3) workshops to apply for our $25,000 Access to Capital Pitch Competition.
