PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Prestige Society, founder Nicole Doss has built brands since 2012 but recently launched Boss Academy to address the disturbing earning gap among women of color entrepreneurs.Boss Academy is a 12-week incubator where participants pitch their business for an opportunity to receive a seed investment.
“I refuse to be in a world where my gender and race pre-determines the level of my success. We only solve the issue of the earning gap by teaching female founders as well as investing in theirsuccess.” -Nicole Doss
Doss has facilitated two rounds of her cohort, investing small seeds of 500 dollars into each winner of the pitch contest in 2020, while preparing for the third round in the spring of 2021. Funds are raised through the #closethegap campaign where 100% of the proceeds go to recipients.
In continuing to advance the advocacy to close the gap, Doss and her team are working to build the Prestige Society Foundation. Creating this 501c(3) will allow Doss to leverage corporate partnerships to increase the amount of funds as well as the amount of recipients each year.
