Boss Up! 
The Black Girl Vision Pitch Competition

Crowdfunding meets Pitch Competition

THE COST OF YOUR TICKET WILL SUPPORT WOMEN ENTREPRENUERS

"Boss Up!" is Black Girl Vision's signature event. Black Girl Vision is a national network for professional and entrepreneurial women. We are an access point (onramp) for women of color into the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Our mission is to expose women of color to economic independence via empowerment and entrepreneurship by developing initiatives in micro-finance, business development and community building.

Boss Up! is crowdfunding meets pitch competition. The funds raised from the tickets will help women of color launch and/or scale their businesses.

How does this work?

  • Donate

  • Attend the event.

  • Listen to dynamic women pitch their businesses.

  • Vote on the pitch you favor.

  • Two women receive seed funding and/or resources for their business!

The first place winner will receive over $1000 in cash and prizes including the vision fund, 12 free t-shirts for her business, and paid lunch with an investor.
