Over the summer I was fortunate enough to be selected for the Black Girl Ventures Jet Pack Cohort. Over the course of four weeks, I learned business tactics, and received feedback regarding my business. I answered hard questions, did a self inventory, and a lot of hard work. One of the best parts was the sense of community I had with the other ladies in the cohort. I recommend Black Girl Ventures to any black/brown female entrepreneur.

I am excited to say that I am a finalist in the Black Girl Ventures Washington, DC Pitch Contest. I have had the opportunity to present my pitch deck to investors. The voting is open between September 10-17th. Here is some more information.

The BGV Pitch Competition is a crowdfunding meets pitch competition. The audience votes with their dollars via our tech platform to determine the winner. The person with the most votes wins (not the most money raised).

Each founder has 3 minutes to pitch and a 3 minute Q&A from the audience.
The audience votes using the SheRaise platform and the winners are chosen.
There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner, but everyone has the opportunity to gain access to capital.

Winners receive....

Funding collected from the audience (and sponsor if applicable)
A free accountant consultation for your business or brand (1st, 2nd, & 3rd)
Free business coaching
$3K in Google Cloud Credits
50% off graphic design by Penji
90% off HubSpot + access to training discounts
All participants will become a part of the BGV Cohort access to resources and exclusive updates.

Obviously I would love to win!. Here is how you can vote for me.
