Between January and April 2024, you can participate in a virtual prep session to help you showcase and pitch your idea using the roadmap. Then, youre challenged to tap into your self-esteem and rock your confidence by pitching your idea in front of fellow Girl Scouts, entrepreneurs, family, and friends at the NextGen Business Fair on Saturday, May 4, 2024, at Cape Fear Community College. Girl Scouts who participate in the NextGen Business Fair will receive an event patch. There is no additional fee to participate in the business fair.
