Doyenne: Showcase event highlights entrepreneurs from Fall 2020 Strategy Acceleration cohort

Doyenne Group’s Fall 2020 Strategy Accelerator cohort will be highlighted at our virtual Showcase event taking place on Tuesday, November 17, 5:30-7:30 PM CST. Sponsored by Boardman Clark and the American Family Institute, this event allows attendees to listen to 5-minute pitches from each venture followed by 8-10 minutes of feedback within their Zoom Breakout Room before the entrepreneur switches breakout rooms to address a new audience with their pitch and receive feedback. All attendees will have
an opportunity to hear from each company as well as provide feedback.

The Showcase is the capstone workshop of the Doyenne Strategy Accelerator (name changing to Triple Threat Venture Training for 2021). Over the course of the past 12 weeks, the participants have explored their business models, their personal skills & talents within their ventures developed a strategic plan for the next 6-18 months, and are now ready for the community to come and support their success and future

“This was the first time we’ve done this program completely virtual,” says Doyenne Executive Director Heather Wentler, “and we’ve been very pleased with how the entrepreneurs have still been able to form relationships with each other as well as with their dedicated Doyenne Coaches & Team Members who have worked with them over the past 12 weeks. It’s been a pleasure and honor to watch their strategies and personal journeys evolve in such a short time, especially with all of the unknowns the pandemic and economy has put us all through this year”.

Ventures who receive funding through Doyenne – either via the Evergreen Fund or 5x5x5 pitch competitions – are expected to be part of a Doyenne Strategy Accelerator within 12-months of receiving funding. Two of the companies presenting at the Showcase have received funding from Doyenne during 2020 (noted below).

Ventures to present at the Showcase event are:
● Karen Renee – eCourt Reporters (Doyenne Milwaukee 2020 5x5x5 winner)
● Nicole Sdao – Altruize (Doyenne Evergreen Fund grant recipient)
● Amanda Strickland – FORT Marketing
● Linda Sattell – Mineral & Co

Applications are currently being taken for the Winter 2021 Triple Threat Venture Training program (formally Strategy Accelerator) until December 18, 2020. All women-led, scalable ventures who fit within the early-stage category of venture progress are encouraged and eligible to apply.

All are welcome to attend the Showcase Event. Registration is free, with a $10 suggested donation to support the non-profit to be able to continue to provide high-quality work throughout the Wisconsin entrepreneurial community to ensure women entrepreneurs from all backgrounds are able to thrive.
