Mission: Aviatra Accelerators is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2010. Our multi-state organization enables women to start and sustain businesses by giving them the resources they need to be successful. Through our expertise in business basics, guidance from mentors and coaches, and access to capital, we continuously encourage our members to move forward, and we embrace them when they return, helping to refuel and reignite their passions.
Serving Our Community:
Business education, networking, access to capital, and digital learning opportunities. Through both cohort style and individualized instruction, networking, mentoring, and coaching Aviatra support female business founders from idea to exit and everything in between. We have served over 2,500 women who have in turn created a minimum of 15,000 jobs, generated over $1 billion in earned revenues, and have helped them access millions of dollars in capital to support their businesses. We serve all women, across every industry, and at any stage of the business cycle. Each year our LAUNCH® participants compete for cash prizes in a public pitch competition called Flight Night, pictured on the left. We are not a one and done accelerator—we have an ongoing community of alumnae who support each other and continue to engage with Aviatra.
