The Windsor Women Accelerate networking series hosted its inaugural event on May 30th 2013 and since then has been organized by the Accelerator on a bi-annual basis. This initiative was created to act as a catalyst that empowers and inspires enterprising women to grow their businesses and communities. Windsor Women Accelerate provides a voice for entrepreneurial women in the Windsor/Essex region who are passionate about accelerating their businesses, supporting fellow entrepreneurs, and giving back to their community in a sustainable way.
Windsor Women Accelerate entrepreneurial network consists of local female entrepreneurs who are playing a crucial role in rebuilding the Windsor Essex economy. Female entrepreneurs are one of the fastest growing business segments in Canada and there is no doubt that women entrepreneurs are making significant contributions to society as well. In fact, Forbes magazine pointed this past February, “there is growing evidence that women are more likely to reinvest their profits in education, their family and their community.” With the support of fellow women entrepreneurs, Windsor women can accelerate business, grow communities, and transform the economy.
