#FartherTogether: Girls Who Venture

… If you want to go far, go together.

(African Proverb)

In The Village, we delight in partnerships because we value the impact of creating a multiplier effect to reach a broader group of people.

We are proud to announce our partnership with Girls Who Venture - a non-profit organization that explores and expands the knowledge on women entrepreneurship and the venture capital segment. They provide an accelerated entrepreneurship and VC program for high school girls particularly in developing and under developed regions. 

During this crisis, the program will be hosted virtually and extended to school girls in the U.S. (ages 13 through 17)

The Girls Who Venture Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital (VC) Program curriculum is inspired and based on top courses from MIT, Stanford, and UPenn Wharton.   

The program is tailored for girls ages 13-17 and tasks participants with conceptualizing a business idea.  Students will receive instruction on how to create a business plan, business pitch slide deck, executive summary, and learn investment due diligence.

At the end of the program, students will submit these items for review and receive a certificate of completion from Girls Who Venture. 

The program is a self paced, flexible and requires approximately 10-12 hours.  The instruction consists of slide and video presentations, as well as a gamification component in the end. There will be resource sections available to explore, and some of the curriculum is tailored regionally (by continent) to include female founders and venture capitalists. 

The program will be hosted on a Learning Management System with secure user logins. Students will be able to create their accounts, view all the materials, and submit the assignments on the platform. 

If you have a daughter in between the ages of 13 to 17, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss.
