EWI is thrilled to welcome our class of amazing entrepreneurs who are ready to embark on a year long fellowship program where they will begin with the Entrepreneur Training for Success Program. They will be empowered through training, entrepreneurship mentoring as well as gaining money management and life skills.
This 2015 Entrepreneur Fellowship Class is filled with a creative and diverse group of entrepreneurs from over 8 different countries including Brazil and Guinea! Their businesses include a range of services to include childcare, photography, jewelry design, gourmet roasted nuts, graphic design, public health consultation, college counseling and even Samba dance classes!
The Meet & Greet on September 30th was a great start to the program. Women entrepreneurs were able to come together and learn more about their classmates and trainers as well as get oriented to the program. They will be transforming their visions and dreams into reality and strengthening their foundation as entrepreneurs.
It was great to see their smiling faces as they shared in the excitement for whats to come!
Icebreaker activities were a fun way to share ideas, get to know one another and set the tone for a year of growth and productivity within a community of powerful women.
Students will develop great relationships with each other, their mentors and trainers which will be their support system as they are developing their business, facing challenges and achieving their goals.
These courageous, inspiring and talented women entrepreneurs will be working hard and recognizing their potential for success. This program will not only assist with these entrepreneurs businesses and employment endeavors but also help them to gain confidence, self esteem and leadership skills.
We are so excited for these women entrepreneurs and can’t wait to see how this program impacts their journey as empowered business women.
A special thank you goes to EWI’s donors who contribute to making this program possible for these amazing entrepreneurs. They plan on working very hard throughout their training process, utilizing their talent and propelling their passion.
