We’re wrapping up our Fall 2015 Startup Program at High Point Friends School from late October to mid-January sponsored by Grow Foundation For Ghana.
Here are some highlights as we head into the PitchPocalypse business plan pitching contest later this week.

Once the Passion to Purse program finishes it’s six week course in October, we’ll be holding the PitchPocalypse business plan pitching contest awarding cash prizes to the top winners.
PRIVATE EVENT – On Saturday, August 29th, our ReBuildUp Course (a series of business mini-games) will be held for women enrolled in YWCA’s Passion to Purse program. This event is sponsored by Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union.
The Passion to Purse Program seeks to improve the economic independence of Greensboro women and their children by implementing a comprehensive project assisting low or no income women to start and maintain micro-enterprises.
After the six week course is finished, participants are eligible to compete in our PitchPocalypse business plan pitching contest held Saturday, October 24th awarding cash prizes to top winners to help launch their businesses. To participate, you must be enrolled in the Passion to Purse program. Contact the YWCA Greensboro for details.
Due to some issues like the weather of the past week, we had a lower than expected turnout so we are rescheduling the PitchPocalypse to a later date in March, possibly on a Sunday to make it more convenient for students to attend. We will also be holding a 2nd ReBuildUp Course the Saturday before to increase our applicant pool for the contest.
Please check back on this site or join our Twitter or Facebook for the announcement on new dates. Those who’ve already entered the PitchPocalypse business plan contest will be contacted by email.
Thank you again to Summit Credit Union, Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, and UNCG’s NC Entrepreneurship Center for their continued support with these events.
