Woman to Woman: Advice from Female Entrepreneurs
Packed with quotes from successful Aviatra alumni, this downloadable pdf puts inspiration at your fingertips.
I'm ready to invest in myself and my business.
Lisa Woodruff, one of our accelerator alumni, said "Just the fact that I paid money to go to something designed specifically for business owners was huge. It was the first time I'd ever spent money on something that wasn't immediately revenue-generating. I was literally investing in being a business owner."
If you're ready, we've got some incredibly valuable options for you.
Our 10-week Momentum Accelerator program will give you customized resources, education and connections to rocket your business to new levels of success. Each session, you'll learn from experts, getting a robust review of business fundamentals and personalized instruction in next-level marketing and sales strategies. You'll also be custom-matched with a SCORE mentor to create a 3-year business plan with financial projections, which will help you when you're ready to apply for funding.
At the end of the program, graduates will receive $1,000 of in-kind services that they need, such as legal help, branding or PR services. We even hook you up with a pitch coach, who will get you presentation-ready for the pitch competition in August.
When you're ready to accelerate your momentum to reach your goals, this is the program for you.
If you're not quite ready for the 10-week commitment that Momentum requires, this one-day bootcamp might work better for you. In it, we focus on the two main things that impact your success: time and money, and we connect you with experts to dig into these critical topics..
We've set up a series of fun, fast-paced events where you can both get and give business advice in a supportive environment. Each event begins with networking and a light breakfast. Then entrepreneurs take turns on the Hot Seat, presenting a business challenge, idea or opportunity to the group. Everyone weighs in with their advice and feedback. The Hot Seat experience is both empowering and exciting and we hope you can join us!
Every month, we put together two workshops on a topic that is relevant to business owners, such as mindset, marketing strategy, hiring, SEO tactics and more. We always leave time for networking and Q&A with the presenters, as well as coffee or an adult beverage.

Alumni Advice: Cultivate Self Confidence
"You will probably feel imposter syndrome and tell yourself you’re not suited for this. Ignore it.
Everyone feels like an imposter sometimes, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. Ease your uncertainties by focusing on expanding your network and making sales.”
