“Women have the power to change the world. From our purchasing decisions as consumers to the leadership and employment opportunities we offer as business owners, women are an incredible and undeniable force. More than 11.6 million firms are owned by women, which translates into 9 million jobs and $1.7 trillion in sales. Women reinvest income in their families and communities at higher rates than men. By increasing the wealth and opportunities for women-owned businesses, we can (AND WILL) significantly impact our communities for the better.”

Mentors Who've Been Where You Are

And more importantly, have been where you want to go. We want you to be successful in the shortest amont of time possible. Members will have regular access to our leadership team and benefit from customized business growth coaching - they won't have to put the time in with a generic cohort. Your business is unique to you - your entrepreneurial journey should be, too. 

Culture-Disrupting Venture Capital 

According to Morgan Stanley's research: "...the world of venture capital continues to overlook an estimated $1Trillion market opportunity that could come from investing in multicultural and women-led startups." We are out to put a dent in those one trillion dollars. We have strong partnerships and collaborative relationships with venture and angel funds interested in helping women grow sound and profitable businesses. Our relationships, proven processes, and one-on-one support increase the chances of success for our companies when applying for funding.

Co-Working with Your Tribe

Entrepreneurship can be lonely, and you don't always know what your next move should be. Being part of a tribe of like-minded entrepreneurial women can make all the difference. Co-working is available in the training room and other spaces at our location inside VibeCary Coworking. Weekly check-in meetings and one-on-one strategy sessions with members of the leadership team are held live in-person at the accelerator or virtually. Ample training sessions and masterminds will be regular parts of your workdays. You are never alone in this journey.

"Noise-Cancelling Headphones"

One of the factors that stops entrepreneurs from achieving success is having to spend an inordinate amount of time setting up their business. Not knowing who and where to find the resources, and if they find them, not knowing if they can trust them. Figuring all of this out is a major distraction. Like headphones that help you focus, we take away all that noise; members will have access to vetted and affordable resources and expert professionals partnering with the accelerator. These include legal services, bookkeeping and accounting, human resources, sales and marketing, manufacturing and distribution, etc. Which means our entrepreneurs are empowered to focus on just one thing: getting their products to market.
