We dare to dream big and bold with you.
How would you like to be a part of a community of diverse, female entrepreneurs who are funded and selected to create, sustain or advance your business?
Founded in 2016, the She Is Excellence Initiative is intended to create a network of multigenerational women within a flourishing ecosystem of entrepreneurship programs, tools and resources aligned with sponsors that will work with you to remove the barriers to entry or “survivability” we often see in traditional experiences for entrepreneurial initiatives.
She Believed She Could So She Did
Once upon a time, you were a little girl with BIG DREAMS that you promised you would make real one day. She Is Excellence can help you keep your dream alive.
The obstacle is the way.
We find there are typical roadblocks to creating, launching, and scaling a business. It is our desire to support you as an aspiring entrepreneur on your journey to define your destiny.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to reduce the downside of possible missteps and increase your chances of success in business?
All the while standing on the shoulders of someone who has gone before, perhaps even in your industry, and is on-board to support your next level of success?
We believe a sponsorship program is the key to UP-Leveling more diverse, female entrepreneurs in today’s markets and economies - She Is Excellence was created to that end.
What is sponsorship? How does it differ from mentorship?
Sponsorship is a special kind of relationship that goes well beyond the traditional definition of mentorship.
While mentors can sit at any level of an industry or business, they are traditionally designed to be a role model who provides emotional support, feedback on how to improve and other advice.
A sponsor is someone who is represents the best interests of another individual in rooms or meetings when the person is not present.
A sponsor is a person of influence, endorses the person publicly and often, and uses their street credentials to ensure the individual is being considered for promising opportunities, challenging assignments, or has the connections to open the door for business funding or increased revenue.
Simply put, a sponsor is a catalyst for change and commits to an action plan, with a timeline and measurements of milestones toward success. A sponsor has strategic skills and connections to increase your results.
We believe in you and the power of your dreams.
The distance between your dreams and reality is called intentional action.
We understand the patience, persistence and belief from yourself and from others to create the business you believe is possible. We also know that often times, “we only know what we know”, and the advice and expertise of another person can be a game-changer in the sustainability of your business.
Most importantly, no matter who you are, man or woman, we aren’t supposed to try and do this alone!
To Breakthrough, You Must Change the Habits that are Holding You Back.
The She Is Excellence Initiative is also a partnership exchange of life skills from fellow entrepreneurs and business professionals who are grounded and proven in their business expertise and desire to pay it forward and work with a next generation entrepreneur.
This sponsorship can be as simple as a specific aspect of your business, such as digital marketing or copywriting development, however more broadly, a sponsor would be someone who has proven experience in growing and developing revenue and relationships that align with the goals you have for your specific business.
What’s Holding You Back?
We know funding is a key element of what can get in the way of advancing a business.
We often think of funding in terms of large sums, however, often it’s a smaller amount under manageable terms that creates the bridge we need to reach the next phase of our business.
In alignment with our social impact goals, we ensure that a key element of our crowdsourcing fund is that a proportion of funds is allocated to supporting female entrepreneurs.
No matter whether or not our program can meet your funding needs, we want to sponsor you with skills, tools and resources. We offer workshops and a tool kit of resources that entrepreneurs and small business owners can use to apply for funding from alternative resources in your community.
Ready to join us? Let’s get started.
Thank you for your interest and support of our long-term mission to expand the horizon of what is possible for humanity through the power of connection!
