Two Graduates Awarded $5,000 in Marketing Services From LEAP


Cincinnati, Oh. (07/24/13) – Project Blue Collar Co-founders, Carole Feeny and Kristin Waters, were recently announced as the winners of Bad Girl Ventures 2013 Spring Class. Bad Girl Ventures, an organization dedicated to equipping and supporting entrepreneurial businesswomen, rewards winners with $25,000 low interest loan, and membership to the Taft Museum. Additionally, their partner, LEAP donated $5,000 to help jumpstart the business.

"Our business is primarily e-commerce and social media driven,” Waters said. “We have identified opportunities in our digital strategy that LEAP can optimize, and we believe with LEAP's help, we can take this movement to its tipping point.”

Project Blue Collar is a small business that sells “Support the Underdog” blue collars to create rescue dog awareness. As a digital-age agency, LEAP's $5,000 donation will be applied to Project Blue Collar's website, eCommerce, social media and SEO. Because the company primarily functions through their website, www.projectbluecollar.com, and relies heavily on innovative digital strategy to increase their online presence, this donation is invaluable. 

“Digital strategy and our online presence are areas that we'd like to leverage,” Waters said. “We plan to have LEAP help us redesign our website to be more eCommerce driven and SEO friendly.”

Bad Girl Ventures will hold two informational sessions in preparation for their fall 2013 business development competition. The informational sessions will be held on July 25th at The Spicy Olive, and August 12th at LEAP's Cincinnati office.
