Looking for Training
A key element of the Be Bold for Change mission is to support women gaining economic party through education. Women own over 40% of small businesses and have told us that they are looking for training and support to successfully grow and operate their businesses online. They are increasingly turning to ecommerce as a critical sales channel and entrepreneurs will benefit from targeted training to grow, thrive and hire employees. Demand for this content was confirmed in a recent research study conducted by WMarketplace* with over 10,000 women-owned businesses and the results were clear:
would like to have instructor-led ecommerce training
prioritize training on marketing and channel analysis
are not using strategic businesses tools or services
are interested in joining a cohort of women-business owners selling on a dedicated platform with a national audience.
The WMarketplace offers support and instructor-led ecommerce workshop-based training for women owned businesses to launch, grow and scale online. HER-Commerce™ launched in 2020 and over 130 businesses have successfully completed the workshops and implemented the training and tools to grow their businesses.
