MBD: Girl Edition | 24Hour Generator

Teams of girls are formed from public and private schools across the region. They are presented with a problem a local business is experiencing and with the help of a mentor, collaborate on ideas to solve it. They spend 24 hours developing and testing solutions before making a final pitch as a team to a panel of judges for a cash prize. It is an intense but life-changing experience as girls broaden their networks, gain new skills, and see what's possible!

MBD: Girl Edition | 24Hour Generator
@ Girls Preparatory School campus at 205 Island Avenue in Chattanooga


Girls in seventh and eighth grades compete in this life-changing experience! Participants are divided into teams and assigned both a facilitator and a mentor to guide the idea generation process. Each team is then presented with a problem or issue a local business or organization is facing (the reverse pitch) and spends 24 hours working together to devise a practical solution. At the end of the event, teams make their final pitches to a panel of judges for a cash prize. 
“MBD taught me that it’s okay to take comfortable risks. Your end goal doesn’t have to be starting your own business. Through MBD: Girl Edition, you can learn skills that prepare you for any business. It’s an extremely fun event and an opportunity girls should take.”
