VCWoman Achieve is a statewide mentorship program bringing Arkansas’s women entrepreneurs the opportunity to develop life-changing relationships to drive professional growth.
VCWoman Achieve is a mentorship program dedicated to forming meaningful relationships and helping an entire community of women flourish professionally. In VCWoman Achieve, women entrepreneurs who are looking for professional coaching will be thoughtfully matched with seasoned women executives/entrepreneurs and will spend the next 12 months growing together.
The Venture Center and its sponsoring partners AEDC, Wright Lindsey Jennings, Arkansas Capital Corp, Venture Noire, Women’s Foundation of Arkansas, THV11, Entergy and Soiree Women’s Symposium are dedicated to this critical effort!
The inaugural VCWoman Achieve program is taking place now through – December 2022.
Throughout the year, VCWoman Achieve will provide monthly opportunities for mentors and mentees to establish a long-lasting relationship. Check-ins, events and goals will facilitate progress and organic growth outside of the formal program.
We are now accepting applications for the 2023 program. To be considered for this program, please complete the application form for mentors and mentees. Twenty mentees and twenty mentors will be accepted into this 12-month program.
This program is for Arkansas residents only. Those selected for the 2023 class will be notified in November 2022. Once selected, mentors will be invited to a Meet & Greet with mentees, as well as a two-hour training in December. The 2023 program will begin in January 2023.
Mentors should meet with their mentee at least one hour a month, whether in-person or virtually. Additionally, this is a yearly program with the introduction of new mentees and mentors every year.
