“BGG creates a nurturing environment, where being a women and being black, is celebrated and embraced. There are many moving parts, when it comes to building a business and BGG creates a straight-forward, comprehensive path. The programs components bring clarity, where there’s confusion. This experience was highly transforming, for personal and professional development. I not only progressed through my business plans, but I was motivated and encouraged. Networking with strong, intelligent and ambitious business women, brought me joy, knowledge and hope for my own professional endeavors. I would certainly recommend BGG, to any aspiring female entrepreneur, it is a worthwhile experience. I look forward to participating in the other programs, BGG has to offer! Thank you all!”
