Program Faculty

At E-School for Girls we have teamed up with some of the greatest minds in academia, successful entrepreneurs, and business leaders from all sectors (retail, tech, food, design, etc). We are one of the solutions in closing the opportunity divide for young people, especially girls. We teach our students about themselves, the world, how to solve problems, and how to support each other while building their first business. We know that our students have a bright future and will be leaders in all their endeavors.

Developing & supporting women as leaders and entrepreneurs.
