V-WISE Phoenix, AZ 2017
January 27 - January 29
The V-WISE experience consists of three phases of training and ongoing support:
This 15-day online learning experience is designed to teach participants the “language of business,” instruct students how to understand opportunity recognition as it relates to growing a sustainable venture, and present actionable strategies related to new venture creation.
The conference phase of the V-WISE experience is a three-day training offered to cohorts of 200 women at locations across the country. The conference includes more than 20 distinct modules of training, designed for both new business owners and to support the needs of existing ventures. Delegates are exposed to successful entrepreneurs, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and leaders in government. Upon completion of this phase, participants will receive 2.7 continuing education units from Syracuse University (documentation is required).
Following the conference, graduates are connected to ongoing support and community-building opportunities focused on small business creation and growth. This resource network includes both SBA-provided supportive services, including Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), Women’s Business Centers (WBCs), Veterans’ Business Outreach Centers (VBOCs), Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) offices, as well as services provided by the IVMF and other IVMF partners.Apply Now!
