Welcome to XXcelerate
Entrepreneurs and small businesses are a critical part of our business ecosystem, but in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, womxn business owners are in extreme danger of going under.
Entrepreneurs need access to capital, business guidance, and peer mentorship now more than ever, but XXcelerate is stretched thin due to the Covid-19 disaster.
Our goal is to continue our support to this community through the next 6-12 months as we manage through the pandemic response, economic tumult, and recovery. Please help US help THEM with a donation today!
XXcelerate provides business support, education and pathways to funding for Oregon women entrepreneurs. We help them to grow their businesses, connect with resources and peer support, and scale profitably.
Impact Report 2021
Without a doubt, women owners across Oregon continued to face the challenge of the pandemic and an environment of uncertainty. What makes the stories of 2021 most striking is the resilience that many women displayed in the face of those challenges. We invite you to share in our stories of grit and perseverance, the lessons we learned and how we were able to serve our community in deeper ways. Welcome to the 2021 XXcelerate Impact Report.
We change the ratio
Despite starting businesses at twice the rate of men, women receive 3% of venture capital and less than 5% of SBA-backed bank loans. Our goal is for more womxn-owned businesses to be bankable, investable, and profitable.
Women launch 1,300 businesses per day in the United States. Despite this outsized growth, they receive a fraction of the capital and training they need to succeed. We are out to change that.
We meet you where you're at. We offer four programs to help entrepreneurs succeed: Navigation & Referral, Peer Mentorship, Growth Education and Capital Coaching.
Support XXcelerate by donating, volunteering, or becoming a mentor. We are also seeking business strategy and financial coaches. Ready to bring XXcelerate to your state? We’re expanding our model nationally!
