While we ask why women own 50% of small businesses but only have access to 5% of available capital, Reka Barabas and Bad Girl Ventures Cleveland are doing something about it. Watch the video here.
Of the 50 women-owned business entrepreneurs who apply to Bad Girl Ventures, 10 will become finalists and eligible for low-interest $25,000 loans.
Along the way, these women entrepreneurs attend a 9-week series of sessions (open to the public- and men!) on marketing, accounting, funding, social media and other topics such as crowdfunding, the topic of the session on this day at Shaker LaunchHouse.
