What is Build it Brigade?
Build it Brigade is a program offered by Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails that allows girls to learn the fundamentals of entrepreneurship through a series of hands-on activities delivered right to her door. Girls receive a kit in the mail with all of the materials needed to build a prototype and take it to market with step-by-step instructions and worksheets that help her learn how to build a business plan, marketing plan, and make a pitch.
What is the Build it Brigade Challenge?
We're challenging New Mexico businesses and individuals (grown-ups) who see value in a future with more female entrepreneurs to participate in Build it Brigade just like one of the girls. You'll receive the same materials and instructions with a special bonus... an invitation to pitch your product to a panel of Girl Scout judges!
Each registration for the Build it Brigade Challenge includes:
- A Build it Brigade kit with all of the supplies and instructions to create a product prototype out of LEGOS, develop a business and marketing plan, design product packaging, and pitch your new business idea.
- An invitation to pitch your product and business idea in a Shark Tank-style competition judged by girls.
- Verbal and written acknowledgement for your role in supporting future female entrepreneurs.

NAWBO’s December virtual meeting will feature guest speaker Meggan Ciaccia, CPA, current President of the NAWBO South Jersey chapter, who will present “Find and Keep Your Focus in 2021: Plan, Implement, and Get Results with the One Page Business Plan.”
Business plans… you either love them or hate them. You use one or you don’t. You can love your planning process or you can dread it. The process should produce focus and clarity and propel you and your team forward! It is your blueprint for growth and success!
If your past planning efforts have left you and your team frustrated, you are not alone. It happens far too frequently. Business planning does not have to be complicated and time consuming. 2020 wasn’t what anyone expected. No one person, business, or industry was left untouched. Business owners that had a written plan were able to pivot and adept more easily. We all want to go into 2021 strong and a plan is the way to start.
NAWBO and its members have significantly benefited from The One Page Business Plan® for over 6 years. Find out how a plan will help you take your business to the next level in 2021.
