Feminist Business School: Concepts & Conception

Feminist Business School: Concepts & Conception


Starts September 10, 2019

Concepts & Conception is a guided, 12-week business incubator for entrepreneurs who want to birth a new business, or a new way of being in business, founded on feminine and feminist principles. C&C is specifically developed for those who are brand new to business or who have been in business but are struggling to thrive (financially or creatively). Our innovative, cross-disciplinary, and immersive curriculum guides you through the creative process of conceiving your own unique enterprise. We provide you with a feminist framework for entrepreneurship and valuable tools for bringing your idea to life, as well as personalized guidance and support for your process.

During this 12-week incubator, you will improve your feminist literacy and your understanding of what a business is. We spend the first half of the course immersed in Concepts—ideas, theories, perspectives, and scholarship to give us a feminist framework for entrepreneurship. We begin by diving into the Feminine Economy, we contemplate Capitalism, outline the anatomy of a business, cozy up to feminist theory, and consider what feminist entrepreneurship might require. In the second half of the course, we transition to Conception. Here we explore the sequential stages of birthing a business using pregnancy as an analogy, and give special attention to the conception phase—the beginning—where anything is possible. At the end of your journey, you embark upon dissolving your patriarchal thinking as you rewrite your relationship to money and power.

The curriculum encourages deep transformation in your relationship with work, money, business, your body and the earth. Through readings, audio recordings, group discussions, guided visualizations, writing assignments, and creative exercises, you will become more integrated and embodied as you conceive your own feminist business.

Throughout the 12-weeks, we provide you with the information and tools to help you feel grounded in the process so you can imagine possibilities, become more visionary, and find a deeper sense of pleasure and play as you move through fears and blockages.

You will receive a number of PDFs, downloadable audio files, worksheets, and video links that you can use now and add to your business library to utilize for years to come. You should expect to devote 4 to 6 hours to classwork each week. There are two Integration Weeks with no new content, to give you time to rest and digest what you’re learning. The live video classes give you the opportunity to explore the materials in-depth. You will meet weekly via phone with an accountability partner to support your process. We also provide ongoing feedback and encouragement in the online discussions threads and through the weekly online journal where you share your work.
