EMPOWER HER TO LEAD
This 8-session program is designed for women entrepreneurs who want to grow their business and develop a strategic marketing plan in a “cohort-style” learning environment. The Womenpreneur and Latinapreneur curriculum benefits entrepreneurs at every stage of their business development.
“It was the best thing I could’ve invested in. The (Womenpreneur) Program made me put my ideas on paper and do the work of understanding my market, analyzing my competition and customers, and pivoting in the Pandemic.”
— Erica Fernandez, Latinapreneur Graduate, 10/29/2020
