With two businesses in her entrepreneurial belt, operating in both Perth and Sydney, Elina D’Cruz business ventures received a boost today with the award of the coveted behind closed doors (BCD) scholarship providing a 12-month fully-funded membership to the national network for businesswomen.

The prized BCD Entrepreneurs Scholarship awards a female Sydney entrepreneur the opportunity to tap into the considerable business acumen of some of the State’s leading businesswomen. The membership provides professional development, peer to peer mentoring and networking opportunities to assist with continued business growth and success.

“The BCD Entrepreneurs Scholarship has proven one of our most successful initiatives, records show scholarship recipients gain enhanced personal and professional skills that contribute to the increased success and sustainability of their business.” Founder and Managing Director of behind closed doors, Donny Walford, said.

“With Elina’s recent move to Sydney the networking opportunities will be of a great advantage as she establishes her footprint in the State.”

In application for the scholarship Elina D’Cruz said, “I work in a male dominated engineering practice, I will really benefit from the peer support to help me manoeuvre the new business and position.”

As Scholarship recipient Elina will receive a 12-month fully-funded BCD Entrepreneurs membership valued at more than $9,000. Members are placed into a cohort of fellow female business owners/entrepreneurs to meet for three hours, ten times a year, with a highly accomplished Facilitator and Program Director.

A runner up BCD Entrepreneurs scholarship, providing an hour of mentoring, was awarded to Karen Williams of Storybook Alpacas.

BCD has been awarding Scholarships to businesswomen since 2012 when Adelaide Jewellery Designer Anna Dimond received a fully funded membership. Entrepreneurs Scholarships in Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne were announced last month, applications for the behind closed doors Executive Scholarship for a businesswoman employed in the Not For Profit industry opened for applications on September 18.
