Walker's Legacy Launches the PROSPECTUS Accelerated Business Program
9/9/2016 2:10:31 PM


This week, Walker's Legacy, a national women-of-color in business collective, launches its PROSPECTUS Accelerated Business Program which focuses on providing both the trainings and resources needed to build and scale businesses founded by women-of-color. 

Minority women are the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs, yet recent studies have shown that businesses owned by women of color are less likely to be selected for funding from angel investors and other financial institutions. In addition to access to prize funding, PROSPECTUS will provide support in access to business education and professional networks.

"The PROSPECTUS Accelerated Business Development Program, is another effort designed by Walker's Legacy that meets our central goal of providing the greatest number of opportunities and resources for women-of-color entrepreneurs to succeed." stated Natalie M. Cofield, Founder & CEO of Walker's Legacy.

The PROSPECTUS program will utilize structured online learning, in-person cohort models and regional and national pitch competitions to aid aspiring and existing small businesses owned by women of color grow and expand. The program is sponsored by Wells Fargo and will include a final grand prize award of $5,000, as well as other in-kind prizes. Additional program partners include Google and Kiva Zip, among others.
