UPDATED Please read the following additional considerations before proceeding to registration
Waitlisted Registrants: We are adding tables and tents in the courtyard of the Art & Garden Center to accommodate waitlisted registrants. Our pop-up shop will proceed -- rain or shine.
Product Requirements: Products should be created or designed by the participant. Reselling is not permitted. As an example: designing a logo and printing it onto a mug is permitted, but simply purchasing a mug, marking up the price and reselling it is not permitted.
Group Businesses: When you register, please be prepared to list your daughter's business name and the name of her business partner(s) if applicable.
Age Requirement: Our programming is designed for girls ages 6 - 17.
Parent participation: Parent/guardian should plan to attend the workshops with their daughters.
Business Idea: You do not need to declare your girlpreneur's business idea/product during registration, however you should arrive to the Business Workshop with a well-honed business idea.
No Food Sales: Since this is a public event, we are subject to the rules and restrictions of the health department. As such, we regret that we are unable to accommodate food merchants.
Inventory: For new registrants, we recommend 25 - 50 pieces of inventory.
Price point: Median price points range between $3-15
Calculating Your Daughter's Profit: Unlike a farmers market, GCI is a nonprofit. As such, your registration fee helps to offset the cost of our nonprofit educational programming and should not be considered a business expense. Therefore, registration fees should not be subtracted from gross sales when calculating profit.
Registration Fee & Refund policy: As part of our mission, Girls Crushing It provides educational opportunities for girls to learn or enhance a variety of leadership and business skills, including public speaking, financial literacy, branding, and more. The registration fees allow us to work with experts to design curriculum that is age-appropriate and aligned with our mission. The pop-up shops allow the girls to use what they have learned in a fun, tangible way, but they are not the core of our mission as a non-profit. As such, refunds will be issued up to 24 hours prior to our Workshop Day, but not after.
