Mentorship. Business Development. Incubation.

Running a business and leading a company are two different things.


Running a company requires hustle. Leading a company requires strategy.

We know it takes...

The SHE CAN WORK Core Program is a business development program for Black women entrepreneurs.

We provide mentorship, programming, partnership and sisterhood that helps build the solid business foundation required to lead a thriving, scalable company...

In 3 Phases


During this VIRTUAL phase we assess current business health, personal development needs and leadership strengths. This time is dedicated to stabilizing the business and the entrepreneur before the intensity of the next phase.

Participant Deliverables

  • Mentor and Business Advisor Assignments

  • Orientation to Program

  • Needs Assessment

  • Business Clean Up

  • Business Bank Account

  • Strengths Assessment


5-Day Bootcamp

Participants in our program are CEOs and leaders of their companies, so you'll heavily focus on getting clarity, making decisions and setting direction for others. We DO NOT focus on helping you become an expert in areas of your business that are not required of you as CEO (i.e. branding). Instead, we help you strategize, communicate, articulate your vision, seek support and give clear instruction to service providers. 

Participants must commit to 5 full days of bootcamp style, IN PERSON completion of business basics work sessions focusing on building a strong business foundation. Each day is designed to provide direction and support execution of daily deliverables.

But First Financials

One of the primary reasons Black women owned businesses fail is related to finances. But not for you! We're spending a full day dedicated to how you will make money, setting up your financial statements and getting clear about how you will finance your new business. 

What you'll complete...

  • A Business Model Canvas

  • Cash Flow Statement, Income Statement and Balance Sheet

  • Business Funding Plan


Our entrepreneurs transition into our VIRTUAL community to continue mentoring, communication, and support from cohort members, the SCW team and our partners. Plus, the option to attend company leadership focused, Work Sessions, VIRTUALLY 2x monthly. Participation in programming at this phase is based on each entrepreneurs needs.

Work sessions focused on:

  • Securing Funding

  • Hiring

  • Revenue Generation

  • Profit Increase
