STRENGTHENING TIES BETWEEN FOUNDATION & CHAPTER

 

propelher™ Business Pitch Competition

The NAWBO Orlando PropelHER™ Pitch Competition is an exciting opportunity for women business owners to pitch their business ideas to prominent Orlando sponsors and business partners while competing for thousands of dollars in cash prizes and in kind services.  Do you have a winning business idea?  We invite individuals from all disciplines – technology, retail products & services, engineering, business, social and political sciences, to participate in the NAWBO Orlando PropelHER™ Pitch Competition, one of NAWBO Orlando’s marquee events celebrating entrepreneurship. This year's competition includes a webinar series and will culminate in Jan 2018 with the 6 finalist competing live at the luncheon. Our presenting sponsor this year is Herzing University.

 

Women Who Win

The Women Who Win program is designed with the female student entrepreneur in mind. Students who have already begun a business enterprise or who are considering becoming an entrepreneur will be paired with women business owners from the Orlando metropolitan area for a 6 month Mentoring Program. These student entrepreneurs will engage in the monthly workshop, learning skills sets needed to be successful as an entrepreneur. Our community partners and area colleges are key supporters of this initiative. The next session will kick off in January 2018.
