Start your business!

The Inspired Entrepreneur program is for women with either a solid business concept that’s ready to launch or women in the early stages of their business and seek to strengthen their business processes and grow.

This small group meets every other week for four hours, and each entrepreneur builds a robust business plan, conducts market research, creates their sales pipeline and pricing structure, develops their elevator pitch, and graduates upon presentation of their three-minute sales pitch to a panel of judges.
