Bad Girl Ventures
(BGV), which supports female entrepreneurs, is hosting the first workshop of its Grow series May 16.
“The BGV Grow workshops are meant to support female business owners at all phases of her business cycle, whether or not she is a BGV alumnae,” BGV Cincinnati Executive Director Nancy Aichholz says.
BGV alumnae have previously completed the Explore or Launch phases
that combine micro-lending and business development into one, but Grow allows the nonprofit to extend a helping hand to all whether or not they’ve worked with BGV in the past.
According to the Covington-based nonprofit’s website, women compose 60 percent of the U.S. population and earn 60 percent of all bachelor’s degrees, and while females own 50 percent of privately held companies, they have access to only 5 percent of the capital — something BGV hopes to change.
Participants attending Grow will receive insight and mentorship from experts in the field such as Maggie Frye, founder of Core Consulting Group LLC
Frye will lead participants through a lesson on the importance of knowing and developing one’s strengths, while future sessions will be led by other successful women who will focus on other topics of interest.
“We are thrilled with the caliber of business experts willing to donate their time to teach these high-level workshops,” Aichholz says. “GROW is one of the assets BGV has to offer as we position ourselves as the regional resource center for female-owned businesses.”
