Madison’s GIRLS’BIZ provides girls in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades the opportunity to develop and run their own business. The girls learn about business, meet women business owners, develop a product line, work with a designer on their logo and company name, and present their products to the National Association of Women Business Owners – Greater Madison Chapter (NAWBO-Madison). Next they market and sell their product and keep track of the expenses (and Profits!). GIRLS’ BIZ includes team-building activities, an overnight trip, and product sales at the Madison’s Women’s Expo and other venues.
I caught up with the girls last Tuesday at the Tempo Holiday Bazaar where they were selling their products for they year including: holiday ornaments & Ambrosia chocolate, Global Mamas handmade bags, and 3 types of organic Potter’s Crackers.
