On June 9, Lightning Leah of Fond du Lac County and Wild Card Willie of Jackson County became the first Entrepreneurs in Training (EIT) to graduate from Bootcamp.
Participating with Defy Illinois via Zoom, they successfully completed all the coursework in the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp. The Business Pitch Showcase was their opportunity to articulate their business solution and share their business pitch. The EITs spent the final portion of their training learning about developing a customer profile, crafting their mission, vision, and values, as well as the ways in which they can finance and structure their startup.
Leah and Willie have amazing business ideas that we know they will bring to the market! We can’t wait to see how they progress and will be right there in their corners with additional mentorship, advice, and support.
