"So You Want to Build a Business?"
I'm feeling truly inspired after leading "So You Want to Build a Business," a four-hour design-thinking workshop crafted to inspire teen girls through the Lean Startup Methodology.
In partnership with BEACON: The DC Women Founders Initiative and The Gemz, Inc., we led 18 girls aged 11-18 through the Business Model Canvas, MVP creation and the Art of Pitching. They identified problems and crafted innovative solutions to issues including the lack of clean water in low-income neighborhoods, a need to connect youth with age-appropriate job/volunteer opportunities, and rising suicide rates among teens.
Thank you Gemz for creating opportunities to empower the next generation of women founders!
