Apply Now for the Fall Women’s Business Accelerator 

The Entrepreneurs Network (TEN), a program of Monroe County and Imagine Monroe, is proud to announce its second Women’s Business Accelerator to be held Fall 2019.  The boot camps are designed for women owned or led businesses that are scaling for growth.

Created exclusively for management-level women, the program focuses on  “lean” methodology to scale for growth. Lean methodology tests assumptions based on data before making investment and then continuously improves business processes with a focus on customers and eliminating waste.

Only 10 companies will be accepted into the Women’s Business Accelerator.  Those selected will pay $495, a fraction of the $25,000 value of the program that is subsidized by Monroe County and Imagine Monroe as part of their ongoing efforts to support business growth.

Nine highly interactive sessions will be held over four months and taught by leading experts from across the country.  Customized to individual needs, participants are also assigned coaches who work one-on-one to advise or connect companies with additional resources.  All TEN coaches either run companies or are active investors.

There will be rolling admittance into the program so early application is strongly recommended. Application deadline is September 9. The online application takes 15 minutes to complete.
