ABOUT AWARE:ACCESS

The AWARE:ACCESS, or Accelerating Women and Underrepresented Entrepreneurs: Accelerate Entrepreneurial Success, seeks to help women and underrepresented minorities in founding a business.

The program is funded through a National Science Foundation grant, and is a Midwest-region partnership between the University of Louisville and Indiana University. The goal is to help women and underrepresented entrepreneurs submit more competitive applications for SBIR and STTR grant funding.

The pilot program provides funding, networking, training and other support to entrepreneurs. Goals include helping these innovators:

  • Identify, engage and mentor them to pursue entrepreneurship as a career;
  • Expand educational, experiential and networking opportunities;
  • Enhance their competitiveness for federal grant applications;
  • And create a regional ecosystem for entrepreneurs and sharing of best practices.
