HERWeek hosted by NC CEED and the Women’s Business Center is preparing for its annual HERWeek during Women’s History Month, March 2-8, 2024. 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 of women and their contributions to the community. On HERPITCH day entrepreneurs, who completed a PITCH course and have been selected to participate, present their business idea in a three 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 in a press release.
“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!”
