EVERYTHING YOUR SMALL BUSINESS NEEDS TO GROW
Bad Girl Ventures
Bad Girl Ventures, Inc. (“BGV”) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2010 with a single vision – that by educating female entrepreneurs and providing them with the tools to be successful, they would begin to have a significant economic impact on the local community. Many were excellent craftsman or bakers but lacked the training to run a successful company and in turn could not gain access to capital. It was our goal to take the passion that stemmed these wonderful business ideas, and help shape it into something more.
What started as an opportunity to help women owned business in one city has grown into a statewide organization, educating hundreds of female entrepreneurs. From its beginnings, BGV’s effectiveness was unquestioned as it rapidly grew from serving 20 Cincinnati women in its first course in 2010 to serving 394 women throughout Ohio and helping secure $355,000 in loans.Click here to visit Bad Girl Ventures to learn more.
