Womentum 2019: More impact, more growth!

In Cycle 2 of our Womentum Accelerator, we were able to have more impact on the cohort of startups and empower them to drive more growth for their businesses. To follow their full journey, stay tuned for Season 2 of our Womentum Series coming soon across our social media platforms.

“I’ve been super grateful to be a part of this program. It makes perfect sense as you progress as a startup,” says Nada Zaher, founder and CEO of Pas-sport.

When surveyed about their business growth, the startups reported a 77 percent improvement in their business model and an 83 percent improvement in the financial model. The founders have improved their pitch and deck by 86 percent and seen an 82 percent improvement in their leadership skills.

Womentum leverages the power of our womena®Media, and we created 80 pieces of unique content focusing on the program and the startups that reached a global audience. The startups increased confidence in dealing with media by 85 percent and saw an overall 85 percent impact on brand strength.

“It’s an accelerator that is extremely hands-on, and I don’t think there are many accelerators that do that job,” says Sabine de Maussion, co-founder and COO of Makerbrane.

Applications for Cycle 3 are opening soon! Watch this space.
