Get 3 Live Events





One of the most difficult things about
building a business or nonprofit is getting clarity on who you're serving, how you're serving them, and what success looks like. In this session you will create a detailed roadmap and leave with a specific actionable plan.
Now that you know what to do, who you serve and how you're serving them, it's time to build the engine to drive customers to you. In this session, you will learn how to acquire, manage and retain clients. You will leave with a 
system to generate massive revenue.
Ready, set, go! This session will prepare you to showcase your idea to the world. You will create a marketing blueprint and go-to-market strategy. Then it's time to get ready to present your idea to a panel of experts. And it's your chance to win seed money.

What's included?

All the tools we wish we had when we were starting out, dedicated support and a killer community to boot!

What most women say they need

We surveyed 200 women to learn more about what they needed to launch their idea. We took that data and built it into our program to give our cohort the absolute best chance at success.

What if I don't know what to create?
Before you join the Action Tank you'll want to have an idea of what you're going to build and launch. However, we have some terrific tools in our resources page to help you find your passion, sort through a few ideas, or vet an idea to make sure it's a good one!

What if I already have a business or nonprofit?
That's great! We can provide more structure and up-level your  systems to support your growth goals.

What if I already have a full-time job?
Many women start businesses on the side. Companies are supporting that more and more, too. Some RECREATE members even get their current employers to pay for the Action Tank.

What's the time commitment?
The Action Tank runs 6 months. There are three live day-long sessions every other month, three 90-minute online courses in between, and you will also work with your accountability groups virtually (we call them Creation Pods) to update, solve, and share. (Number of Creation Pod meetings are at the groups discretion.) 

Who's involved?
Kimberly Mylls and Melissa Lamson are experienced coaches and host the Action Tank. For each business building step, we bring in the best in their field of expertise who are committed to making entrepreneurs successful. 

Do you have a payment plan?
Yes, we do. First step is to apply!
