Westminster Hosts GE Capital Banking on Women Graduation @ Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorium

Westminster College is pleased to host a graduation celebration for the 2012-2013 GE Capital Banking on Women class on July 18, 2013, in the Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorium. The event will include a graduation ceremony, panel discussion with participants and program introduction to interested women entrepreneurs. Applications for the next Banking on Women class will open during this event with classes starting in fall of 2013.

GE Banking on Women launched in Salt Lake City in 2010 to help women entrepreneurs jump-start their own businesses. The Utah Microentreprise Loan Fund (UMLF) and Westminster College’s Center for Entrepreneurship host the 15-week intensive course where participants receive business plan development training, GE business mentorship and access to financial advice and backing.

Participants in this year’s graduating class created small businesses like KmK Designs, a company specializing in handmade, beaded jewelry in Park City.

“Our Banking on Women class was an excellent opportunity for me,” said Anna Kozole, founder of KmK Designs. “The class provided detailed structure to building a business with actual cash flow projections. It was great to brainstorm with 15 other women who were starting their businesses or already had an existing business and had a great deal of experience.”
