Spring Session 2020 (SOLD OUT)

Girls Crushing It is thrilled to announce our Spring 2020 Session of MBA-inspired programming for girls ages 8 -18. Here's what you have to look forward to!

This Spring, girls will learn the fundamentals of brick and mortar retail operations and develop a go-to-market strategy for their business, including engaging with a panel of local shop owners. Girls will then have the opportunity to pitch their products for the consideration of local shop owners, who will select and purchase inventory to be sold in their physical stores in the weeks leading up to our Spring Pop-up Shop. We are happy to be partnering with the following retailers for Spring 2020...
