Premier Incubator Program for Women of Color Entrepreneurs at HBCUs
The WBENC Women of Color Incubator is a premier program designed for Black female student entrepreneurs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Students accepted into the incubator will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with subject matter experts from some of the most successful women-owned businesses and Fortune 500 companies. The incubator kicks off with a virtual keynote from successful entrepreneurs and business leaders from Fortune 500 Companies and culminates with a pitch competition awarding winners with $9,000 in seed funding and a chance to receive a summer 2023 paid internship.
