Black Women Bosses - Spring 2021
Black Women Bosses is a cohort-based, 6-week entrepreneurship and leadership program for Black female (current KSU) students to help successfully launch businesses, apply entrepreneurial thinking to career goals, and build a leadership mentality.
Meetings for Spring 2021 will take place virtually, 5:30-7 pm, February 8 - March 22, 2021 [Day TBD].
The curriculum is based on a workshop-style, "flipped- classroom" approach and will engage successful business and community mentors to share insights and support students in developing a launch plan. Participants will be expected to engage with materials (readings, videos, etc) before class to prepare for interactive, working sessions with the cohort and speakers during class times.
Participants who complete the full program will be prepared for launching their business and eligible for a launch grant up to $500, mentor-matching, as well as other support.
