Walker’s Legacy,  a global professional collective for women of color, is an organization committed to engaging and equipping career-driven women of color to success in business and entrepreneurship.

Minority women are the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs, yet recent studies have shown that businesses owned by women of color are less likely to be selected for funding from angel investors and other financial institutions.

We are excited to continue our work in dissolving this disparity with the PROSPECTUS Online Business Accelerator Program.

PROSPECTUS focuses on providing both the trainings and resources needed to build and scale businesses founded by women-of-color.

In addition to access to $5,000 prize funding upon completion of the program, PROSPECTUS provides support in access to business education and professional networks to tackle some of the most prevalent challenges this community faces when building their businesses.

PROSPECTUS utilizes structured online learning and an in-person cohort model aid aspiring and existing business women of color in advancing their business operations. Applicable business owners can register for the program here

Courses will be taught virtually on Sunday evenings starting fall 2017. 

The 9-week program will feature the following courses:

  • Developing an Effective Marketing & Promotional Plan
  • Legal Aspects of Small Business
  • Contracting for Small Businesses
  • Strategic Growth for Small Businesses
  • Building A Winning Team
  • Accounting & Insurance for Small Businesses
  • Finance for Small Business
  • IT for Small Business
  • Presenting for Investors

We look forward to furthering the agenda of understanding, empowering, and supporting women-owned businesses by providing the resources and education necessary to grow and scale with this program.

  • Chrycka Harper

    Do I have a formal business in order to participate? I am currently in the process of starting a business, i.e writing the business plan, legalizing the name, etc.

    • Anistia Phiaria

      No you do not need to have a formal business plan to participate.

      • Chrycka Harper

        So does the course focus more on how to start a business or how to grow a business?

  • Denise Johnson

    Are scholarships available?

    • Anistia Phiaria

      Hi Denise! Currently, scholarships are not available- yet the tradeoff of paying $100.00 to receive $5,000 is a benefit. Most loans that are funded require a loan processing fee in order to receive funding. This is a great all inclusive program to invest in yourself.

      • Denise Johnson

        I don’t doubt the value, I’m on a fixed-income (disability) the tuition is more than ten-percent of my month. Thanks for your prompt response!

      • Alyssa Hogan

        The money is a loan that has to be paid back?

        • Rachel Hampton

          Hi Alyssa! The $5,000 funding is awarded as a prize and is not a loan that has to be paid back.

  • LaKisha Harris

    Do you have to pay the $5000.00 back?

    • Rachel Hampton

      Hi LaKisha! The $5,000 funding is awarded as a prize and is not a loan that has to be paid back.

    Is there a way to see all of the questions outside of google docs to prepare before submitting?

  • Andrena

    Hello,

    Do all participants receive $5,000 at the end, or will one person receive the prize money?
