As we head into the final weeks of our Equity in Entrepreneurship program, we’re excited to highlight the individuals and businesses that have persevered through our 16-week program and are showing clear signs of success.  One of our most exciting Equity in Entrepreneurship inaugural cohort businesses is also run by one of our youngest entrepreneurs, high school student  Joelle Hinds.  Her business is Slay Bay Beauty.

Originally a nail care business Joelle had started, since being part of the Equity in Entrepreneurship program, she’s expanded her services to a full suite of women’s body care products.

“As someone who has struggled with dry skin,” says Joelle, ” I have seen firsthand the need that many others have for quality, natural products that moisturize the skin and boost confidence.”

She’s found the one-on-one coaching in the program the most helpful. “They provide clear next steps that you can take and ways to achieve them.”

We’re glad Joelle and Slay Bay Beauty is part of the Equity in Entrepreneurship program and can’t wait to see where Joelle takes her brand!
