NASSAU, Bahamas and WASHINGTON — On July 31, in Nassau, Bahamas three aspiring women entrepreneurs from the United States and the Bahamas were recognized as the 2017 international recipients of “The Woman Behind The Business Retreat” scholarship. This distinguished award affords women entrepreneurs an opportunity to learn from and build international relations with business owners, c-suite level executives and their peers in the entrepreneurial sector.
“Establishing a strong support base is one of the many keys to building a successful business,” says Angel Livas, founder of the non-profit, The Woman Behind The Business. “That’s where The Woman Behind Business creates an ecosphere for women business owners to expand collaborative partnerships with women internationally.”
It’s because of partnerships with the Visionary Network Group, Target Optimized Marketing Solutions (TOMS), and Creative Introduction that this international scholarship endeavor was a success. Each of the aforementioned businesses covered travel, accommodations and registrations costs for the following scholarship winners: Tameka Ferrika-Grant, owner of Reliable Babysitting Services (Bahamas); Danielle Woodhouse-Johnson, owner of DaniJay Designs (U.S.); and Alejandra Santaolalla, owner of Color with Luna (U.S.).
Nicole Dias, CEO of The Visionary Network Group said “many people have great ideas that could make for a great and profitable business, but without support & mentoring an entrepreneur’s growth can be hindered or stunted. That’s why I’m honored to provide such an exciting opportunity to my scholarship recipient … to help her translate her vision into a reality.”
“The Woman Behind The Business is a great organization,” says Richard Tomkins, CEO of TOMS. “They empower women entrepreneurs and share the same principles that we are committed to at TOMS: helping women grow their businesses and meet their professional goals. We look forward to our partnership with WBB and working with the dynamic entrepreneurs attending the inaugural retreat in the Bahamas this fall.”
The Melia Nassau Beach Resort will host The Woman Behind The Business Retreat from September 8-12th, in Nassau, Bahamas. To register or learn more visit: www.wbbtalk.com.
