GroYourBiz Fellowship

GroYourBiz™ and Red Letter Films launched an alliance to help women entrepreneurs develop professionally and expand their businesses. In December 2016, we were proud to introduce our new fellowship initiative to help women entrepreneurs achieve their potential.

The GroYourBiz™ Fellowship, valued at $1,200, provides a one-year membership to a GroYourBiz™Advisory Board anywhere in Canada, the USA and/or the UK, where boards currently exist.  In addition, winners also receive a full conference package to attend EXCELerate 2017: GroYourBiz with the Speed of Collaboration in Vancouver — a $700 value. 

The 9 winners for this first-time initiative were announced on March 8th, International Women’s Day, through the twitter campaign #GYBFellowship. The campaign shared their profiles, along with words of wisdom from our Sponsors and Advisory Board Chairs.
