This program uses passion for purpose by having girls tap into their entrepreneurial spirit to become better contributors to society!
CREATING A PASSION PROJECT
Introduction to entrepreneurship including brainstorming, researching, branding, budgeting, and pitching!
NETWORKING & MENTORSHIP
Although this is an individual program, girls will be paired with a mentor and 1-2 other girls for the meetings. This will create guidance but also allow for girls to connect and support each other. Girls will also have opportunities to be mentored by guest entrepreneurs!
“FASTPITCH” COMPETITION NIGHT
All are invited to watch our HER Venturists pitch to a panel of current female entrepreneurs for our “FastPitch” competition night! All participants will have an opportunity to present their business and practice their pitching skills to our amazing female judges.
TRANSLATING SPORT TO BUSINESS

“HerVenture opened my mind to new possibilities that I didn’t know were possible for myself. My fellow teammates/competition pushed me out of my comfort zone, and made me push myself to improve and constantly take feedback and apply it to my business. Slowly as I stepped more and more out of my comfort zone, my confidence level increased. I’ve never had trouble with confidence. But this program lit a spark inside me that I never knew was their. Speaking and sharing my ideas to large groups of people became easy. This was definitely one of the best choices I’ve ever made.”
