Applications for the July Cohort have now closed. Come back to this page for more details on the next cohort.
Designed to accelerate the business growth plans of ambitious female founders, our aim is to inspire, energise and connect female founders and provide you with the confidence, skills and tools to help you be immediately more effective in business.
The Bootcamp will help you sharpen your value proposition; tighten your pitch; connect with our women angels, who will give you the inside track on what angels look for when investing; and provide tips on how to protect your intellectual property and stay cyber safe.
The Bootcamp comprises 5 bitesize sessions (10 – 11.30 am) throughout July, as follows –
- 3 July Getting Started
- 10 July What’s your Value?
- 17 July Pitch with Style
- 24 July Protect and Secure: Intellectual Property and Cybersecurity
- 31 July Meet the Angels
The Bootcamp is delivered over 5 turbo-charged Zoom masterclasses plus online pre-work activities. Participants will use the Skillfluence eLearning platform to watch video content and download masterclass worksheets and handouts. This ensures when participants attend the live masterclass, the focus is on interactive discussion, sharing challenges and generating solutions together. The aim is to create a strong network, where people will be supportive of each other and keep in touch long after the Bootcamp is finished. Skillfluence Founder, Alison Gray, will host, facilitating an energising, confidence building and participative approach throughout.
Each week we will deliver a live, 90-minute masterclass via zoom.
