Collegiate female entrepreneurs (or recent graduates) accepted into the 2024 cohort will participate in a five-day, growth-based accelerator designed to guide emerging business owners through their startup phase. The Collegiate Accelerator includes a Mentorship Program that will connect student participants with seasoned women-owned businesses alongside mentors from leading Corporations in a 2:1 mentorship model.
The 2024 cohort will travel to Denver, Colorado for two-days of peer connections, professional networking, and targeted educational curriculum focused on the fundamentals of growth for startups.
While in Denver, program participants will also attend the WBENC National Conference, known as the largest event of its kind for women-owned businesses. Student founders will have an exclusive opportunity to showcase their service or product to more than 4,000 attendees during Demo Day. Additionally, the 2024 cohort will participate in the WBENC Collegiate Accelerator Pitch Competition in which seed capital grants will be awarded to the most disruptive and innovative businesses.
