Supporting Women & High-Growth Entrepreneurship

on September 20, 2010 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

While data show that women start more than 50 percent of all businesses, their participation in high-growth startups remains extremely low. In an effort to change this, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation has announced a $500,000 grant to Astia, a premier business accelerator that works with women-led startups. The grant represents a commitment from both organizations to strategically work together to advance the participation of women in high-growth entrepreneurship.

Funding from the Foundation will be used to increase the reach of the Astia Doing It Right program for entrepreneurs. Doing It Right is a comprehensive program - designed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs - that begins with six days of panels and workshops conducted by serial entrepreneurs, investors, and industry experts, followed by two months of personalized advice from industry experts.
