Global Program For Women Entrepreneurs


Downtown Denver, Colorado (United States)

After years of work with women entrepreneurs internationally, Amy Scerra and Steve Haase of Think Global Institute decided to bring their global program full circle—and they’re starting in Denver, Colorado.

The nonprofit hosts a 12-week “business accelerator” program for women entrepreneurs who have “hit a roadblock or hurdle,” says Scerra.  The program is part hands-on mentoring, part handbook, and part virtual support. A team of advisors work one-on-one inside each business and with each business owner.   After running the program in 26 countries, Ms. Scerra says women have trouble securing the funds and support they need, no matter where they live.

Take action:  Read the qualifications and complete the application by no later than December 20. (They also take applications for mentors year-round.)

US Women On Fire When It Comes to Starting Businesses


Babson College, Babson Park, MA (United States)

Are women less capable than men when it comes to starting a business?  According to co-authors Susan Duffy and Sharon Kan, that’s the perception many women have about themselves, which leads to a staggering amount of entrepreneurial potential being left on the table.  Don’t think for it minute though that it applies to US women.

US women entrepreneurs are on fire. They lead the world in the number of businesses they start each year with a launch rate twice that of other countries. They are educated: 70 per cent have at least a four-year degree. They also out-innovate all other women entrepreneurs globally and beat their US male counterparts.

Note:  Susan Duffy is chief learning office and co-founder the Win Lab and Sharon Kan is chief visionary officer and co-founder the Women Innovating Now (Win) Lab.
