The Ladies Who Make It Happen
GGG Teen Entrepreneurs are Black high school girls. These girls are selected by the GGG Entrepreneurship & Innovation Education Team to attend the 6-week intensive summer incubator where they will learn from GGG staff, professionals and entrepreneurs, named Resource Volunteers, how to build her own business from the ground up.
Entrepreneurship Mentors are young Black women who are enrolled in an accredited college or university. These young women are high energy and on fire for building up GGG Teen Entrepreneurs who are attending and have already graduated from the 6-week intensive summer incubator. Each GGG Mentor will be matched with a small cohort of GGG entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurship Advisors are volunteers are Black & Brown women who are entrepreneurs who have credibility and proven performance in the business world AND/OR women who have careers as professionals in varying fields. These women will be an invaluable resource and service to GGG, especially to the GGG Teen Entrepreneurs during the 6-week intensive summer incubator and throughout the year.
Get Girls Going Program Life Cycle
During the months of May -June, Get Girls Going will undergo intense application review and interviewing. Get Girls Going will select 15 GGG Entrepreneurs that combined have a diverse range of topics they propose to focus on.
After the GGG Entrepreneurs are selected, 5 Entrepreneurship Mentors and 15 Resource Volunteers will go through the same interviewing process.
