HERWeek hosted by NC CEED and the Women’s Business Center is preparing for its annual HERWeek during Women’s History Month, March 2 to 8.
NC CEED has opened applications for HERPitch training classes which is a prerequisite for participation in the HERPitch competition. In previous years, pitch winners have been awarded $2,500 to $7,500 in grants. HERWeek is a week-long celebration where we celebrate women and their remarkable contributions to our community. On HERPITCH day entrepreneurs, who completed a PITCH course and have been selected to participate, present their business idea in a 3 minute pitch to a panel of judges for the chance to win a reimbursable grant.
Hannah de la Reyes Stevenson of Rosette Visual Art was a HERPitch winner from HERWeek in March 2023. She shared her experience of participating and winning the HERPitch.
“I came to the Fayetteville Women’s Business Center to learn about running a business and I was told that there was a contest in a few weeks to win business fund money. I was skeptical about joining with it coming up so soon. But the wonderful mentors there not only encouraged me but also trained me on how to pitch a business. I am so grateful for their patience, honest feedback, and kindness," de la Reyes Stevenson said.
