Award-winning entrepreneur Dr. Velma Trayham has launched a $500,000 scholarship fund to support Black women entrepreneurs across the country. The fund, which is a part of her upcoming Millionaire Mastermind Entrepreneur Accelerator Program this spring, is being offered by means of Dr. Trayham's Millionaire Mastermind Academy and her company, Thinkzilla Consulting Group.
The accelerator program provides extensive mentoring, business training, and access to funding growth opportunities for minority business owners and has helped more than 7,000 women nationwide gain the education they need to succeed in business. The accelerator program runs from March 8th through June 14th and is available online or in-person in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Scholarship and program applications are now being accepted here. The Millionaire Mastermind Academy has previously awarded $60,000 in scholarships and more than $30,000 in seed funding to help women entrepreneurs create successful sustainable business enterprises.
“We are thrilled to support even more women entrepreneurs in furthering their education to grow their businesses,” said Lexi Applequist, program coordinator for the Millionaire Mastermind Academy. “In our upcoming program, we look forward to bringing together minority women from across the country to take control of their financial futures and make a profound impact on their communities, families, and businesses.”
