Conglomerate of Women Owned Businesses launch the Southern Crescent's First Funding Pitch
By: Henry County Women in Business
The Funding Pitch will consist of several women owned businesses who are looking to grow or start their business. In a Shark Tank style, the women will have an opportunity to share about their business or product, its potential growth, and why they should win the opportunity to be funded. Investors from major corporations will also be present and will be willing to take a look at all the contestants for future partnerships. This historical event is the first of its kind in the Southern Crescent and the magnitude of what this means to a small business is major. The winner will also receive a financial and business coach, who will assist in strategic accountability and growth.
"We are at a turning point in Henry County, the Southern Crescent, Georgia and the U.S. It is critical that we do all that we can to support women owned-businesses and women in business," said founder, Ariel Shaw, MBA. "The ability to help shape our own ecosystem through support is an amazing opportunity."
"The mission for Henry County Women in Business is simple. It is to unequivocally foster business relationships to help sustain and grow our business and local economy. Our vision is to develop key partnerships, deepen business relationships and to provide resources to assist in the growth of women owned business. While networking is a key component, membership will include memberships to key groups, and allow them to be at the table where decisions are made, while promoting their business and increasing their bottomline."
