The BWR TOP National Challenge is designed to support African American women and girl “ideapreneurs” and small minority women-owned start-up ventures as a pathway to wealth building for Black women and families. Mid-Atlantic Challenge participants must be bonafide residents of the District, Maryland, and Virginia.

The event includes live pitch competitions.

A live competition will close out the event during the 12th Annual BWR “Women of Power” National Summit, on March 17-18 at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, Maryland. The sign-up period ends March 10.
