Gain the Skills. Deliver a Great Pitch.

The AWE Pitch is distinct from other accelerator and incubator programs primarily because it uses the experience and knowledge of seasoned women entrepreneurs and targeted resources to help prepare women founders to give a winning pitch, secure funding and grow their business.

Past Winners

"These meetings have been extremely informative and helpful to me as an entrepreneur. We actually had a pitch just a few days ago and were able to see the success of some of the new techniques learned from the series. I am so appreciative of AWE for the opportunity to participate in something like this."
