How I first learned to write a business plan.
It was about the black women entrepreneurs degree.
You’ve probably never heard of the Black Women Entrepreneurs degree, but that’s okay.
It’s not a business school, and the program isn’t accredited by any other body.
But it’s an exciting program, and one that’s being offered in a number of countries around the world.
The idea is to create a more inclusive, gender-balanced and more diverse pool of business students and leaders.
The Black Women Venture Capital (BWC) program, a two-year program at Stanford University that’s designed to prepare women for a career in venture capital, opened its doors last month.
At a university that’s known for its business success stories, the program is not only a great way to prepare students for their first venture capital firm but a way to promote a more diverse talent pool.
I’ve been in business for over 15 years.
I have never had a Black woman venture capitalist degree.
I think it’s a wonderful thing to have.
I don’t think it will come for a while, but I’m hoping that it will, because I think the world of women and women-driven businesses.
It is a really exciting time for women to have a foothold in the space.
I feel like it’s about time.
The program was launched in the U.S. in 2009, and since then has expanded to other countries.
Its focus is on developing women- and underrepresented groups in the tech industry.
And since it started, Black women have also been a major focus of the program.
“Black women, especially, are still disproportionately represented in the startup world,” says Lizzy Davis, director of business development at the BWC.
“There are still not as many women entrepreneurs as there were 10 years ago, and I think that’s really frustrating because it means there’s more opportunity for women and people of color to have more success in business.”
The program teaches women about the business world and how to develop a vision for their company.
But the key to the program lies in its curriculum.
“It’s about how to build a business that can actually survive and thrive in the business environment,” says Davis.
“That’s what this program does so well.”
Davis is currently working on a startup called Strive and has partnered with Stanford to launch the Black Business Fellowship, which offers scholarships for women entrepreneurs in the Bay Area.
Black women in Silicon Valley, particularly women who are black, are starting to see their numbers in tech rise.
In the past five years, the number of women in the industry has more than doubled, with women making up roughly 40% of venture capital investors.
The BWC is offering the first ever Black Women MBA, which will open in 2017.
And, while the Black women entrepreneurs’ program is focused on Black women, the Black men’s entrepreneurship program also offers courses for both men and women.
“The main difference between the Black Entrepreneurs and the Black Men Entrepreneurs programs is that the Black male Entrepreneurs program focuses on black men, and there’s a lot of focus on entrepreneurship,” says BWC Director Lizzy.
“The Black women Entrepreneurs is focused more on women.”
For the BBC, Davis says, the idea is that these two programs are complementary.
And with the Black entrepreneurship program, there are more women than ever before.
“In the world right now, there’s not enough women in business,” Davis says.
“It’s really important that women can take advantage of the opportunities that are available to them in business.
That’s why we have a Black Entrepreneur program, to help women get ahead.”
While the Black entrepreneurs program offers women access to a diverse pool, it also gives women an opportunity to gain leadership.
And the Black woman entrepreneurship program is an opportunity for those who want to work in tech.
“This program will provide Black women with the opportunity to develop leadership and mentorship skills that are invaluable to their careers in the world’s fastest growing business,” says Tariq Nasir, the president of the BWA.
“I think Black women can be leaders, and we’re all leaders in this world.”
For many women, entrepreneurship is a pathway to a better life.
Women are making up more than half of all venture capital investments in the United States.
And women entrepreneurs are becoming a major part of the growth of these companies.
In 2017, women made up 31% of the number who held a job as an executive.
And in 2017, more than 4,000 women held a senior executive position in tech companies.
“This is a significant change, because for the last 20 years women have been underrepresented in the venture capital industry,” says Dr. Sondra M. Carter, a professor at the University of Chicago’s business school.
Carter says that, in order to attract women to venture capital firms
