SPRING 2022 ENTREPRENEUR TRAINING FOR SUCCESS (ETS) GRADUATES!

PLEASE JOIN US IN CELEBRATING OUR SPRING 2022 ENTREPRENEUR TRAINING FOR SUCCESS (ETS) GRADUATES!

BUSINESS PITCH EVENT: THURSDAY, JULY 28, 2022 - 6:30 PM VIA ZOOM

 We encourage you to attend if...

  • you are a friend or family of an EWI graduate
  • you are an EWI program alumna
  • you support EWI programs as a volunteer
  • you want to learn more about EWI's programs
  • you would like to apply for EWI's Fall 2022 cohorts
  • you support local and women-owned businesses!

REGISTER HERE TO ATTEND!

This Spring, a group of talented women were selected to participate in EWI's (Online) Entrepreneur Training for Success (ETS) program. Classes began in mid-April, with women participating from West Baltimore.

Each cohort is led by an EWI trainer and is supported by a group of volunteer mentors and guest speakers that have generously given their time, experience, and expertise to help our Entrepreneurs learn the ins and outs of business ownership. After three (3) months and more than 60 hours of training to gain knowledge, acquire tools, and develop their business plans, they are ready to share their business ideas with the world!

During this event, you will learn all about Empowered Women International and our programs. Each ETS program graduate will have 3 minutes to pitch their business to the "virtual" audience. After each pitch, we will have a panel of guest judges who will ask exploratory questions and provide real-time feedback for our Entrepreneurs. 

We are so proud and impressed with the graduates’ commitment to the ETS program! After each pitch event, we will send an email with the contact information and details of each business presented so that you can continue to support them!
