Congratulations to Danielle Kwateng-Clark on winning a $1,000 Merit Award in the 2016 Brooklyn Public Library’s Annual PowerUP! Business Plan Competition. Danielle’s business plan presented The Volta, an online boutique selling apparel, accessories, and apothecary from designers of the African Diaspora.
About the WIBO Workshop, Danielle says: “WIBO was an amazing experience that was pivotal in allowing me to focus on what my business was, test my idea based on market interest and put together a practical plan of action. I also got the great experience of learning about successful business practices from entrepreneurs, alongside classmates that were hungry for knowledge.”
The first three weeks of market research were very helpful for me. During that time I surveyed those in my target market and got a strong idea of what I needed to do to appeal to them. Truly, the foundation of any business is knowing if there’s a need for it, and this is what I learned during this period.”
