Leadership & Entrepreneurial Accelerator Program Starts March 2015!

WomenLaunch-Accelerator-ProgramWe’re announcing a new program specifically designed to build the leadership and entrepreneurial business skills of women founders.

The Leadership & Entrepreneurial Accelerator Program (LEAP) offers a flexible, 100% live online video alternative to in-person accelerators that can be difficult for the busy founder to attend.

The LEAP offering brings together important success factors for entrepreneurship, leadership, and women in business into a single 20-session program that emphasizes business expertise, authentic leadership, committed community, and the approach women have to collaboration and networking.

LEAP includes one-to-one coaching, business challenge sessions, guest speakers, participant mastermind series, and community engagement tools. LEAP sessions will be March 4 – July 29, 2015.

The introductory free webinar, Top 5 Success Factors to Fueling Traction for Your Startup on Your Terms will be January 21, 2015.

“The Leadership & Entrepreneurial Accelerator Program (LEAP) offers a uniquely tailored opportunity for busy women founders to build their startups. Our team was inspired by women’s need for flexibility in time and place to manage many activities, obligations, and personal interests while starting up businesses. LEAP fits into that busy lifestyle with a rich program delivered live with all participants online and on video. We’ll see each other, interact, and deepen our connections. Women are amazing at developing community – LEAP is taking that a step further in using those gifts of connecting and collaboration to make our businesses soar however far and wide we wish,” said Kathryn Gorges, CEO and Founder of WomenLaunch.

“Women are powerhouses – we have the intuition, skills, resilience, ideas and passion for impact to disrupt markets. Today’s Women’s Entrepreneurship Day is a testament to the ability of women to build profitable and sustainable businesses that impact the world. LEAP was created to support women to be that powerful – to influence, shape, and build innovative and profitable businesses. We are supporting women to take the leap as influencers, creators, leaders, and connectors and to do it in a way that’s most authentic and aligned to who we are and what is most important to us. Ultimately, when women claim their passion and vision, we are unstoppable,” said Irene Fehr of Ignited Woman Coaching.

WomenLaunch’s new LEAP offering brings over 40 years of business, marketing, personal power coaching, and leadership and organization development expertise to women founders committed to growing their startup businesses and recognize the value of building their own capabilities in order to develop a thriving company.
