Girls Who Venture are girls driven by perpose, heart and desire to see a transformed society. Education to them is the foundation stone through which the greatest milestones are made, they get exposed to different investment ideas of which they build on to make their dreams come true. They are a great inspiration to other girls who develop the same passion of trending the same path of success in the male dominated field of Medicine, Engineering, Business, Agriculture etc.

I joined a GWV supported pitch day for female students in rural Kenya, and I was extremely impressed by the quality of the event set up and even more so by the quality of ventures the girls had built. For me, GSW is taking care of a critical part of the funnel and reaching up to ensure more girls get into stem and venture building, and that's where most of the work needs to be done.

It's amazing what they are doing.

It has and still is a great honor to be part of GWV and see how they are changing lives of young girls in Kenya. Even just the exposure to something bigger and better has opened up the eyes and minds of many young girls.

My experience with girls who venture was excellent! They guide me to develop an idea that will solve a problem of society. My project was about an app that will help informal workers to find jobs near their homes so they could generate new incomes. Also, I went to a virtual event to present my pitch, and that helps me to improve my ideas with the recommendations that the juries gave me.

Mi experiencia con Girls WHo Venture ha sido muy enriquecedora, pues he tenido la oportunidad de llevar un curso de emprendimiento. El cual me ha permitido obtener nuevos conocimientos con respecto a cómo generar mi emprendimiento; y motivo por el cual, he podido elaborar un pitch y presentarlo ante un jurado, el cual me proporcionó un feedback sobre mi idea. Sin duda, una grata experiencia.

Girls Who Venture is doing a lot of work to increase the visibility of women entrepreneurship and the venture capital environment in several countries around the world. The research that the organization is engaged in can be instrumental to identifying entrepreneurship education gaps across these countries. Raising awareness about such education gaps for girls is crucial to drawing resources towards this cause, and improving women and girls' access to education and training for women entrepreneurship. I cannot wait to see the impact that Girls Who Venture will have on young girls and entrepreneurship as it scales up!

I think that it is vital that programs Like Girls Who Venture exist. My experience with the program was motivational. I had the opportunity to work with girls who typically aren’t exposed the kind of content provided by GWV. These are girls who come from underrepresented communities and thus they are not always exposed to entrepreneurship, let alone venture capital. I believe that as GWV expands, especially throughout the US, we will see a shift in these overlooked communities where more and more of the girls will pursue careers in tech and other STEM careers simply because they were made aware that they exist. GWV fills an educational void that the traditional school system cannot.

Girls who Venture is a wonderful non-profit. The training given is very educative to the girls and women. It is giving enough knowledge in entrepreneurship and therefore more women will go into business. I have learned how to invest into other businesses and how negotiate good deals while I venture.
