the startup self™ sessions

Our flagship StartUp Self™ Program takes participants step-by-step through the process of planning a socially responsible small business or social-profit enterprise. Building on the fundamentals of financial literacy, sessions cover the practical aspects of business, offer girls the opportunity to take ownership over their ideas, and empower them to take initiative.

StartUp Self™ workshops explore how individuals and organizations of all kinds must set goals, generate revenue, and allocate resources to meet those goals. This exposes girls and young women to the rationale for developing businesses, voting, investing, and consuming based on their values.  Participants are also encouraged to embrace the underlying importance of financial models before jumping into the 'creative' side of brand marketing. A strong emphasis is placed on the many pathways to funding new ventures.

This interactive program incorporates a variety of technology-based tools and is designed to improve participants' digital literacy.

Suitable for Girls & Young Women Age 13+
