More than One Hundred WeIGNITE Graduates Set to Build Traction in Their Business

In May 2022, the Spring 2022 WeIGNITE, powered by EOS®, cohort concluded and graduated over 100 Women Business Enterprises (WBEs). With the sponsorship of Wells Fargo and the experts of EOS Worldwide™, WeIGNITE helped WBEs achieve Traction® in their businesses through self-implementing the Entrepreneurial Operating System® described in the book Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business by Gino Wickman.

Companies of various sizes and from industries across the WBENC network gathered to learn how they can adopt the Entrepreneurial Operating System®. This detail-oriented program provides step-by-step instructions on how to better organize and lead your WBE towards success.

Lynnette Coverly of Coverly Professional Services, Inc., had this to say about the program:

“this will be a game-changer to more efficient onboarding of both clients and employees and will help our company get to the $1 Million level.”

On May 27th, 2022, WeIGNITE alumni, new and old alike were invited to welcome the new cohort into the alumni network with the Wells Fargo Master class and Fireside chat led by Wells Fargo Senior Economist & Managing Director, Sarah House. Based in Charlotte, N.C., Sarah covers the U.S. macro economy, including the labor market, inflation trends, and monetary policy. Sarah frequently speaks about the economy to the national media, including The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News, CNBC and National Public Radio. We thank Sarah for sharing her expertise with the WeIGNITE network.

Please join us in congratulating all of the WBENC-Certified WBEs that participated (listed below)!

WeIGNITE, powered by EOS®, will be opening back up for applications later this summer for a fall cohort, stay up to date on all things WeIGNITE and more by subscribing to our newsletter.
