Cap n’ Gowns- LEAP Awards BGV at Graduation Ceremony

by: in LEAP

“All good things must come to an end”… unless you have a strategic partnership with digital agency, LEAP. At the Graduation Ceremony on Friday, June 8, LEAP awarded each of the Bad Girl Ventures (BGV) 10 finalists with a check for $5,000 towards digital marketing services. Our goal is to help support the finalist on their journey to professional success. We are both honored and proud to be associated with this innovative group of professional women.


LEAP had the pleasure of working with this extraordinary organization, helping to arm entrepreneurial businesses with the tools they need to succeed in today’s ever-changing world. Bad Girl Ventures Inc. is an organization headquartered out of Cincinnati, OH whom LEAP has formed a mutually valuable strategic partnership with this year. We have been extremely involved with these women beyond lending our Cincinnati office space as a classroom for their seminars. From serving on the selection committee to choose the 10 finalists to supplying our marketing experts as a resource at their workshops, LEAP has been there every step of the way. We have watched this graduating class from beginning to end and we are very excited to see the growth of each and every student.

The graduation ceremony that took place on LEAP Cincy’s rooftop, was the prefect ending to a great spring session. SCORE and First Financial also sponsored the spring class providing business mentoring and a loan for $25,000 for the winning contestant Kim Howell, founder of Mamadoc.

We wish every Bad Girl the best of luck in the future and hope to continue the growth of our partnership with BGV over the years.


Congrats again to all the finalists!
