To create the ELLA Accelerator, we’ve inspired ourselves from the best programs worldwide and by talking to hundreds of women entrepreneurs about their needs. This incredible content will be fully delivered by women.
The program will entail approximately 2 days of intensive work, every 2 weeks.
Be matched with terrific mentors who can offer you personalized support and guide you through the difficult parts.
There’s a lot to learn when running a business: How to be amazing at marketing. How to close sales. Get trained on the core that you need to know and learn how to apply these in real life situations.
Learning from Experts
Learn and get connected to experts, might they be experienced entrepreneurs or industry specialist that can help you untangle what’s messy.
Be part of a group of incredible women founders. You are not alone on this journey and you’ll see how exciting it is to work with peers who truly get you.
As a founder, you’ll likely have to interact with people. A lot. Having the right soft skills can be a gamechanger in helping your business (and you!) succeed. Learn how to become an outstanding networker and a people’s person.
Being part of ELLA means that you’ll have access to a plethora of inspiring entrepreneurs, brilliant industry experts and many more.
You’ll also be invited to networking events to attend solo or with peers from ELLA.
