Bad Girl Ventures

Harness Cycle and Toast are two near-westside businesses you’ve probably heard of. What you might not know is that both businesses benefited and succeeded in part thanks to Bad Girl Ventures, a nonprofit dedicated to helping women build and sustain businesses in Cincinnati and Cleveland. Through microfinance loans and mentorship, BGV helps provide a few key pieces in the puzzle — access to capital and education — to give good ideas every chance to turn into great businesses and longstanding parts of the community. BGV delivers on what it promises: investing in bold women.
