Aviatra Accelerators, Inc., an accelerator devoted to launching and sustaining women-owned startups and small businesses, is currently accepting applications for its Fall 2017 LAUNCH and EXPLORE classes. Female entrepreneurs may apply for either class based on their businesses’ level of development.

LAUNCH is for female entrepreneurs and business owners who already operate a viable, well-vetted business with an established revenue stream and customer base. Entrepreneurs participating in the LAUNCH class are eligible to compete for capital to take their businesses to the next level. At the end of the LAUNCH stage, Aviatra will award up to $25,000 in low-interest loans to one or more of these businesses.

The LAUNCH class provides startups with a three-year financial projection workbook and business plan format validated by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Each entrepreneur is assigned an individual mentor and provided with introductions to vetted service providers.

The deadline to apply for Aviatra’s Fall 2017 LAUNCH class is Aug. 28. Aviatra Accelerators will announce the businesses that are accepted to this class on Sept. 6. The class will span nine weeks and will be held every Wednesday night from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Small Business Development Center- Cleveland Heights on the second floor (2340 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118).

At the end of the class, all participants will present their business plans and funding needs to the Aviatra Loan Selection Committee. The recipients of the loans will be publicly announced at the Aviatra event in November. The LAUNCH class costs $500 per person and $250 for any additional business partner.
