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.
