Are You a Bad Girl? BGV Cleveland May Be Right For You

Bad Girl Ventures is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization seeking women interested in starting a business. BGV offers a series of business-focused workshops that provide valuable insights, tools, resources and instruction on starting, branding and growing a business.

A part of the nine-week session is a chance to compete for a grand prize of a $25,000 loan to help start/grow your business.

Here is a word from Beth Gantz, Bad Girl Ventures:

Are you dreaming about running your own successful business? Or are you already a small business owner looking for funding? Bad Girl Ventures Cleveland can help you!

BGV awards a $25,000 loan to one of the 10 Finalist Program participants at the end of the Fall 2013 session. The program consists of 9 classes, homework, coaching, and mentoring. Application deadline is September 1, 2013! Apply online!

Classes start on September 17, 2103 and are open to the public for a small fee ($225 for a 9-week pass or $35 per class). Registration and schedule available at under the “Cities” tab.

Even if you are not interested in participating in the entire program, each class is open to the public for just $35 and I would encourage you to check out the offerings and see if there is a program near you. The contest is geared primarily to women business owners in the Ohio region.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Karen Malone Wright of The Not Mom who was also one of the winners of Bad Girl Ventures. Check out my interview and learn more about Karen and her business. Purposeful Woman on a Mission – The Not a Mom.
