Are there any entrepreneur mentor programs for youth women?

I'm interested in learning more from women business owners that have already done it. #business #management #entrepreneur #marketing #international-business

Hi there! I would recommend checking into the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). I included the main website below and one for the San Francisco Bay Area, which is close by you. They have a Facebook page, online activities and education, as well as a newsletter that you can sign up for. You may be able to seek a local mentor through their social media. Just so you know, they posted that there are over 153,000 women-owned businesses in the Bay Area alone! Best of luck, Dr. B

I'd check women's colleges that have a business major or degree. Some will also have Entrepreneurship Centers or mentoring programs in place.
I graduated with an MBA from Simmons College in Boston; the program was women only. Fantastic support, lots of growth and learning.
Good luck!

Hi Sophie,

Great question! I would look at Women who Code: https://www.womenwhocode.com/

Also, if there are any companies you are interested in or know the field of industry you want to study, check those company websites. Many times they offer internship or mentorship programs to youth, students, and young adults starting in their careers.

Hi Sophie,

Look into the following
1. SCORE: https://www.score.org/women-business-leaders-resource-center

2. Sky’sTheLimit: https://www.skysthelimit.org/
[>70% of entrepreneurs on this platform are women and there are many women mentors]

Hi Sophie,

Great question! When considering entrepreneurship one of the first questions you can ask yourself is what are you passionate and interested in? This can help guide you towards what sort of opportunities you can pursue. For example, if you are interested in baking you may want to become an entrepreneur and open up your own bakery! Knowing what sort of business you would like to pursue will then lead you towards finding bakeries owned by women!

Also, being an entrepreneur can lead you down so many different paths, and just because somebody has never pursued the same entrepreneurial idea you have, doesn't mean it isn't something you should pursue if that is what you are passionate about!

Hope this helps!
