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.
What started as an opportunity to help women-owned businesses in one city has grown into a multi state organization, educating over 2000 female entrepreneurs. From its inception in 2010, Aviatra's effectiveness has been proven as it rapidly has grown to serve women throughout Ohio and Northern Kentucky, and has granted over $1,000,000 in low-interest loans. Our women have received over $10 million in follow-on funding and have generated over $240 million in combined earned revenue upon completion of our program.
