Are you a female entrepreneur who believes they are ready to take the next big step in building a profitable dream business?
The programme, which is priced at $749 for participants (or three monthly instalments of $269 each), is a three-month virtual incubator that supports entrepreneurs to start and grow profitable businesses online.
Future Females Business School first cohort last year had 44 female entrepreneurs from 11 countries
In statement yesterday (21 February) Future Females said the business school was born out of a finding in a survey the organisation ran last year of over 20 000 female entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, conducted in partnership with Startup Grind.
The study found that nearly 80% of respondents said they do not feel they have the support — in terms of education, mentorship or funding — they need to start or grow their businesses with confidence.
The Future Females Business School aims to solve these issues and guide participants into creating profitable business with strong business foundations.
Although the programme does not provide funding, it does aim to give entrepreneurs essential skills to build a fundable business.
The programme consists 12 content modules that Future Females said cover “all the components” of growing a business.
The organisation said the last cohort saw 44 female entrepreneurs from 11 countries progress through the Future Females Business School. Of the 44, about 55% have not yet launched their business.
The remaining 45% were already in business, some for less than a year (15%), and others having been in business for more than a year (30%) and seeking knowledge on how to scale.
Future Females said the success of these 44 entrepreneurs has been “rapid and astounding”. It added that the feedback on the last year’s programme has been positive, with students highlighting the holistic syllabus, “highly practical” content and weekly coaching sessions as key standouts.
Future Females and The Growth Academy co-founder Lauren Dallas said success for the organisation is seeing programme participants come out of the programme with a “proven and profitable” business.
