2020 is ushering in a new era for GBNYC. Beginning in March 2020, GBNYC will launch its first incubator program entitled She Means Business. The #incubator is a hybrid program that offers online courses in conjunction with in-person masterclasses and workshops. The inaugural cohort will consist of 20 #women #entrepreneurs from New York City that represents various industries.
Applications for the program open on January 15, 2020, and will continue until March 6, 2020. The 6-week incubator program will officially begin on Monday, March 30, 2020, and wrap on Friday, May 9, 2019, with a #Pitch Day Competition. On Pitch Day, the 20 entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to present their fine-tuned #business plans. One incubator graduate will receive a $1,500 She Means Business Starter Grant to fund their business.
The She Means Business Incubator's purpose is to help #underrepresented entrepreneurs develop businesses that aide economic development within their community. For more information about the program, please visit here.
