Interior designer Jacqui Dunn has been announced recipient of behind closed doors (BCD) coveted Entrepreneur scholarship providing 12-months of professional development, peer to peer mentoring and networking to boost her latest business venture The Travelling Stylist.
The prized BCD Entrepreneurs scholarship awards a female Adelaide Entrepreneur the opportunity to tap into the considerable business acumen of some of the State’s leading businesswomen to assist with continued business growth and success.
“Jacqui joins an enviable list of Alumni to have received the award including inaugural recipient Palas Jewelry’s Anna Dimond and most recently 40 under 40 Award recipient Marie Sulda of Kaleidoscopic Travel”, Ms Walford, said.
“The BCD Entrepreneurs scholarship is undoubtedly 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.”
Jacqui Dunn is no stranger to the entrepreneurial world, she started her first business in 2009, co-founded a business in 2012 which she exited in 2014, and now is focusing on her latest venture The Travelling Stylist.
In application for the Scholarship Ms Dunn said, “There is no better feeling than being in an environment surrounded by strong, supportive professional women.”
As Scholarship recipient Ms Dunn will receive a 12-month fully funded BCD Entrepreneurs membership valued at more than $5,500. 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.
“Knowledge and tips from other like minded business women will be invaluable.” Ms Dunn said.
Two runner up BCD Entrepreneur scholarship awards, each providing an hour of mentoring, were awarded to Stacey Orrock of Envisage Business Solutions and Sarah Coligan of The Press Gallery.
BCD has been awarding Scholarships to businesswomen since 2012 when Melbourne Fashion Designer, Lisa Barron received a 12-month fully funded membership.
