An exclusive women entrepreneurs’ program designed to foster the success of women-run companies
KSU Executive Education Programs announce the launch of LaunchPad2X™.
This new program seeks women founders and CEOs interested in growing their business by offering entrepreneurs lessons in expanding business acumen, becoming investable, and enhancing their leadership skills. Facilitators from Fortune 1000 companies, private company executives, academia, the U.S. Military, and professional service firms will join together to deliver this cutting-edge program.
LaunchPad2X™ is intentionally designed exclusively for women-led businesses. Women are outpacing men in launching companies. However, women-led and women-owned businesses remain smaller and trail in growth. “Our goal is to reverse this trend by enhancing the skills and resources of women in entrepreneurial leadership roles, presenting them to potential investors and igniting growth in their companies,” said Bernie Dixon, Founder and CEO of Advising Angels and Executive-In-Residence at KSU’s Coles College of Business who partnered with Dixon in the creation of the LaunchPad2X™ Program.
Participants will be paired with experienced advisors to help guide them through the process of getting "investor-ready." The three sessions will cover a range of developmental courses addressing business strategy, tactics with investors, and adopting a CEO-leadership style.
A panel of supporters and business leaders will engage in the program and review applications for acceptance. Supporters include: Advising Angels, Frazier & Deeter, Morris Manning & Martin, Merrill Lynch, PNC Bank, Cooks Warehouse, Write2Market, GH Consulting Group, the Metro Atlanta Chamber and other key businesses in the Southeast U.S. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
LaunchPad2X™ will take place on Sept. 18, Oct. 2, and Oct. 25, 2012. Selected applicants will attend sessions at various Atlanta locations providing participants an opportunity to interact with the local business community.
“We are pleased to be a part of such a robust program where we are able to unite entrepreneurs with the services, advice and support they require to grow their business. As the business community coalesces around this class of female entrepreneurs, the economic benefits will be realized and multiply,” said Ann McDonald, Director of Business Development at Morris, Manning and Martin LLP.
Program applications are being accepted through August 31, 2012.
