Female Foundry

Dentsu Aegis Network is taking Female Foundry, its global business growth program, to a virtual online format in response to COVID-19.

The interactive bootcamp, which aims to support 30 entrepreneurs, will now run from July 13 to 31. Female Foundry’s online curriculum will help the selected women develop their strategies, skills, networks and resilience to today’s economic and market challenges. Participants will join six 90-minute live sessions and will undertake individual and small group coursework tasks to build out their peer community. Female-led businesses located in the Eastern and Central U.S. time zones are encouraged to apply. Entries are open through June 15. Interested business owners can submit their application on the Female Foundry website.
