Calling all female entrepreneurs!

At the Idea Suite, we’re deeply passionate about expanding leadership opportunities for women, as well as supporting innovative female entrepreneurship. As such, we’re thrilled to be able to offer two incredible female founders the opportunity to participate in an exciting development program in early 2019.

It all starts with an invitation to the Business Mastery Conference in Palm Beach, Florida in January 2019, valued at more than $10,000 per ticket. The five-day long course strategically breaks down the innovative approaches used by industry leaders like Apple, Zappos, American Express and Facebook to help you discover both where your business is now, and how you can create a map to reach your goals in the future. The program also includes one pre-event and up to six post-event coaching sessions with The Idea Suite founders Shelli Baltman and Fiona Stevenson. Both the course tuition and pre- and post-event coaching sessions are being offered free of charge by The Idea Suite - The Entrepreneurs will be responsible for travel costs to the conference, hotel and any incidentals.

Application details for the development program are as follows:

  1. You can apply as an individual or with a female co-founder

  2. You need to have registered your business at least 12 months ago, as of November 21st, 2018. If you haven’t yet started your own business or reached the year mark, though, keep at it. We believe in you, and would love to hear from you next time around!

  3. You must not have the financial means to attend the conference – we want to make sure that two women who wouldn’t otherwise be able to go to the conference are given the chance to experience it.

  4. Please send us no more than 300 words telling us why you want to participate in the development program, and what you hope to get out of it.

  5. Please also send us no more than 300 words about where you want to take your business over the next one to three years.

Please apply by Wednesday November 21st, 2018. 

We will review all applications and select two entrepreneurs by early December 2018.

Applications should be sent to with the subject line ‘Entrepreneur Development Program’, and should include your full name(s), the name and location of (city) of your company, and a brief summary of the nature of your business. We look forward to hearing from you!
