The BBOP Center will be open for 16 hours per day and encompass 10,000 square feet — made up of 14 offices, 3 conference rooms, a cafeteria, shared workspaces, and a childcare center. Within the Center, you can find a quick-pitch room with venture capitalists negotiating prices, a one-on-one room where deals are being signed in fresh ink, and a legal guidance room where professionals can review contracts, advise participants, and make sure each woman is earning her fair share. Our fund development room will provide information about available grants and opportunities to access capital. With each room having an intentional purpose, the Center will drive forward and accelerate women’s ideas and their potential in every inch of the building.
