The WOCF Women’s Entrepreneurial Initiative (WEI) is a fresh and unique approach to growing high potential start-up or existing women-owned business enterprises. The key and common factor that we’re looking for is growth. Whether you are a brand new start-up business aiming to take your product or service across the country or abroad, or a well-established business seeking to significantly expand your operation to new markets, the WEI is looking for you!
How do we define growth?
Our general growth guidelines appear below:
- An existing or start-up business (at any level) that desires to grow its annual sales by at least $10 Million in the next 5-7 years
- A business that demonstrates the ability to compete and market its goods and services across a multi-state footprint and/or a global marketplace
- A business that demonstrates the ability to create at least 25 new jobs in the next 5-7 years
In addition to the above growth guidelines, the WEI is further seeking emerging businesses that meet the following additional criteria:
- A business that maintains or is developing a highly differentiated product or service with a compelling value proposition (a truly unique competitive advantage)
- A business that requires private investor capital or other “risk-based” funding sources
- A business whose leadership is open to sharing ownership in the business to further attract growth capital
