Registration Deadline Extended to 8 May 2015

Following a very successful conference, where Brescia hosted over 200 female high school students, and over 30 female entrepreneurs from throughout our community, we will be continuing this initiative in the form of two summer entrepreneurship ‘boot-camps’. This is a unique opportunity for students to experience the business startup process, supported by local female entrepreneurs. The boot camps will offer intensive hand-on training by experts in the field, in five major areas of entrepreneurship: business models, customer discovery, product prototyping, financial management, pitching an idea.   For information and FREE registration, click HERE.
