Pitch night for TTVT Entrepreneurs
Celebrate the ventures graduating from Doyenne's Spring cohort of Triple Threat Venture Training at the virtual Showcase event on June 7. You'll hear their pitches and have the opportunity to share your support, feedback, and expertise, as well as get to network with other attendees.
Please plan to attend the event for the full 2 hours as you will be an active participant. During the event, you will hear 5 minute venture pitches from 4 of the 9 entrepreneurs and provide feedback and ways you can support their success going forward.
The Showcase event is a professional development opportunity for the entrepreneurs. Most of the entrepreneurs have never developed or delivered a venture pitch and slide deck. We look forward to having you as part of their growth and development!

Carole Chabries (Milwaukee, WI) The Clareo Group The Clareo Group works to eliminate the suffering caused by poor leadership that minimizes people's talents, ignores their gifts, constrains their power, and extinguishes their light. Mission: To equip people to lead with clarity, purpose, and joy. In higher education, faculty are often promoted into positions of leadership with little to no experience in basic supervising, let alone leading a team of colleagues to a vision of success. In addition, at many colleges and universities only a few chair positions turn over every year, so while there is consistent churn there is rarely a significant # of new leaders at a given institution to make it possible for the organization to invest in leadership development. With 20+ years of experience developing leaders in higher education, The Clareo Group provides tailored workshops and coaching to groups of colleges and universities seeking to support their new faculty leaders through individual growth and group coaching.
