Kristy Ferguson, co-owner and CEO of Beyond the Box (BTB) has also been selected by WBENC to join a nationwide cohort of women-owned businesses under the WeTHRIVE program. WeTHRIVE is a virtual executive development program designed to help women entrepreneurs survive today’s uncertainty, grow and thrive for the future.
Ferguson says of their WBNEC certification, “Getting WBENC certified has been a goal of mine since the beginning. I want to be around other women who have gone through similar growing pains and, in turn, be able to offer my support to those who become homeowners. I love that they offer training to help you grow your business and are particularly interested in the impact you will have on your community with this knowledge. »
Beyond The Box has been assigned to the WeTHRIVE Program Grow Course Track, based on a personal and professional assessment made during the application process.
