You’ll join a community of other bossgirls like yourself to discover entrepreneurship. You and a team of other bossgirls will focus on a problem, come up with an innovative solution for it, research the market, compare competitors, learn how to price your product & prototype it, and create a brand around your idea. At the end of the program, you’ll pitch your idea to an audience–think Shark Tank without the sharks. All the while, you’ll get to meet entrepreneurs & get advice from expert mentors from Standard Chartered, our program sponsor.
