logistics and frequently asked questions:
what is the criteria for participation?
The Doyenne Triple Threat Venture Training is open to all women-led ventures who have started a business on their own and are not part of a franchise or multi-level marketing (MLM) program. The Training is designed for entrepreneurs who have already started their venture and are looking to take it to the next level. Since the workshops are virtual, entrepreneurs who live outside Wisconsin are welcome to apply and attend, but are responsible for travel costs if they wish to attend in-person (if available).
The fee of the Triple Threat Venture Training is for 1 participant. If additional team members would like to be part of certain workshops or activities, a separate fee will be administered.
Participant needs to identify as female. Additional team members can be of any gender identity. Team members can be other founders, key supporters, staff/contractors, life partners, anyone who is key to making the venture successful.
The Training fee includes the costs for the expert facilitators and coaches, program materials/tools, access to the online course content, and food/beverage provided during workshops (if meeting in-person).
What is the cost, and do you offer payment plans?
The total value of the 12-week Triple Threat Venture Training + 8-week Post Care workshops is $10,000. Thanks to generous sponsorships and in-kind support we are able to make the program available for a $500 deposit to all women and/or marginalized gender(s) entrepreneurs.
Upon completion of all aspects of the Triple Threat Venture Training program (as outlined in The Experience section of this page) you will be awarded a $2,500 unrestricted grant to use as you determine as well as your $500 deposit will be returned.

Where are workshops held?
All workshops included in the Triple Threat Venture Training program will be held virtually with video conferencing URLs sent to attendees. For coaching sessions and peer coffees, it is up to participants if they wish to meet in-person or virtually, and they must supply their own virtual meeting URLs.
What is the cancellation policy?

can you tell me more about each of the workshops?
— Visual Logic Model Workshop (90 minutes + potential for additional time): Entrepreneurs are trying to solve problems for their customers/clients. Every entrepreneur has conscious and unconscious beliefs, thoughts, and feelings about what it will take to meet customers'/clients' needs. In these workshops, you will work with expert facilitators, artists, and coaches to create a visual model that depicts the underlying logic and story that drives your venture and the behaviours and decisions you make. This visual model will help you tell the story of your venture to different audiences.
—Celebration Event (1.5 hours): Come back together as a full-cohort one last time to celebrate all you have achieved, learned, and set intensions for the next phase of your venture once the program is over. Coaches, entrepreneurs, and workshop facilitators will be in attendance to debrief, celebrate each other, and also get entrepreneurs prepared for the After Care program.
—After Care Program (8-weeks, 1 hour per week): KOKORO continues to work with entrepreneurs after the formal Triple Threat Venture Training program ends. During these weekly touch-points, each entrepreneur will have the opportunity to reflect, share out, and ask for support as they begin executing on their action and strategy plans.
Additional Doyenne Programming after the Triple Threat Venture Training program: Learning Teams are a great way to continue relationships and work that was done during the 12-week Triple Threat Venture Training program. Take a look at the Learning Team overview page to see if it's a good fit for your next phase of your entrepreneurial journey.

Who are the Coaches & Mentors?
If a coach is not meeting the needs or other problems arise while coaching as part of Doyenne, we take this very seriously and use a "2 strike" rule. When a situation is brought to Doyenne team member's attention we evaluate and meet with the coach to hear their take on the situation and also address concerns without revealing who has brought their name to attention. If the problem, or other situations, occurs again then Doyenne will remove the coach from the pool of professionals we refer our entrepreneurs to.
Mentors who are part of Doyenne are professionals who register to come to less formal supportive workshops than our Coaches. Mentors are not required to go through our Doyenne Coaches Training Workshop but they are given access to a recorded session and encouraged to watch. When a mentor arrives at a workshop where they will be working with entrepreneurs as part of Doyenne programming the Doyenne team member who is leading the workshop will always go through a high level of expectations and set the stage for how the mentor & entrepreneur experience will be conducted. We apply the same criteria for our Mentors as our Coaches as to our expectations for how to work with entrepreneurs who are part of Doyenne and they must also agree to our Code of Conduct and Terms of Service.
If you would like to become a Doyenne Coach or Mentor please fill out the application.
