You Glow, Girl Women Entrepreneur Grant

You Glow, Girl Women Entrepreneur Grant

Thursday, October 19, 2023 (12:00 AM - 12:00 AM) (HST)



For those of you that are new to the brand, welcome to the family! For those of you that have been following us for a while, then you know how much this grant means to us and to Cristie Besu, our founder and CEO. Cristie has been making drool-worthy, guilt-free treats for more than five years. As a mother of three and a business owner, she made significant sacrifices to launch her brand, having first-hand experience of the hardships and barriers that limit many female entrepreneurs from succeeding. As a result of her personal experience, Cristie developed this grant to pay it forward to the next generation of female entrepreneurs ready to live out their business dreams.

What sets You Glow Girl apart from other business grants you might come across is all in the secret sauce of the grand prize package. We’re looking to support one glow-getter not only financially but physically, emotionally and spiritually as well. It is Cristie’s belief that business owners, particularly women and “mom-prenuers” can’t bring their best to their business without also filling their own cup! Both our 2021 and 2022 iterations of the grand prize included the following:

  • A $10k cash award to help propel her business forward
  • A one-year supply of Eat Me Guilt Free products to keep a girl fueled on the hustle
  • A physical health & wellness prize (in 2021 it was a Peloton bike and in 2022 a one-year subscription to Class Pass!) to help her reach her fitness goals
  • An intensive mentorship program with Cristie

And in 2022 we even introduced a mental and spiritual health portion of the prize - 12 monthly mental health check-ins with a licensed professional and a one-year subscription to Calm so she can bring a clear mind & heart to each & every day as she builds her team. In 2023, we’re going to continue to UPGRADE - stay tuned!


We know you CEOs are busy so put this date on your calendar: October 19, 2023! This is when the application period will open but we’ll sneak peek some of the elements of the 2023 grant on our social before then.
