Women are change-agents, and with your help, she can feed her family, build her business, raise her kids, employ her neighbors and lead economic growth in her region. More than an investor, you will be an agent for change by supporting emerging businesses in a constantly growing market. Through the WEAmericas Accelerator program, Thunderbird will bring together three cohorts of promising women entrepreneurs for an interactive business training program.
