Together, we can harness the power of momentum.

We are building resources to help women and minority owned small businesses -entrepreneurs succeed.

.

We believe entrepreneurs are important to a thriving community.

Accelerate the Foundation helps women and minority owned small businesses gain momentum by providing valuable knowledge and tools they can implement to improve their chances for success, helping their employees and communities improve too.

Help us support our community.

We are here to help you gain momentum!

Whether a startup or a struggling small business Accelerate the Foundation is here. We believe the biggest impact on the community comes through giving back and our own successes have allowed us to open our CENTRO facility to help entrepreneurs reach their greatest potential. By providing resources like educational content, meeting & learning from other successful business owners, and access to resources, we setup entrepreneurs to flourish and give back to their own communities.

Here are a few ways we keep the momentum going:

Industry Experts

Key expertise from legal, finance, marketing, HR, and more

Pier-to-Pier Learning

Successful business owners share their challenges and how they overcame them

Motivational Speakers

Inspirational leaders who have founded successful businesses
