(NORFOLK, Virginia) April5, 2017 — The Envision Lead Grow team is so thrilled to announce a partnership with the Crews Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Memphis.
Dates for this camp will be June 12-16, 2017.
The Norfolk-based nonprofit created by business owner Angela D. Reddix will be traveling to 7 cities by bus during the summer of 2017. The theme for the summer: 1 program. 7 cities in 2017. 1,000 new GIRL BOSSES.
The Crews Center for Entrepreneurship, the University of Memphis’ entrepreneurial hub, encourages and supports a culture of entrepreneurship, helping faculty and student entrepreneurs as they focus their passions and commercialize their ideas, research, and inventions into the foundations of successful companies. At the Crews Center, you can get: 1-on-1 advice/business coaching, work with others in our dedicated co-working space, create prototypes in the Prototype Lab, and find help with funding. The Crews Center is focused on providing the resources to make your startup a reality.
Envision Lead Grow’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty for 1,000 girls in underserved communities in the U.S. each year. The ELG team is committed to helping them build their futures through entrepreneurship…one girl at a time.
This summer, counselors with the ELG team will make stops in 7 different cities across the United States. They will share the fast-paced, fun-filled curriculum, “The 8 Seeds to Success in Business,” during a week-long summer camp in each city.
After the camp wraps up and the bus leaves, the middle school girls who attended the camp will continue to get support through hand-picked mentors in their city, online training with the ELG team and web-based discussions.
Angela D. Reddix is the President & CEO of ARDX, a multi-million dollar healthcare management and technology consulting company based in Norfolk. She created the Envision Lead Grow movement in 2016.
