JOURNEY 6
Our center supports diverse women entrepreneurs in their journey across all business life cycles – from start-up to maturity – with information, tools, and resources designed to escalate their visions. We provide technical assistance, shared services, and counseling services (in person and virtually) to help women business owners navigate the myriad of opportunities available that enable their firms to grow, hire employees, and be leaders in their communities. This center is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business administration.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) announced the launch of Journey 6 of the Ascent e-learning platform, which is focused on educating women business owners about venturing into government contracting to help expand their businesses.
  • Government As Your Customers – helps the user understand government as a customer.
  • Government Contracting Opportunities – evaluates contracting opportunities with local, state, and federal governments.
  • Government Subcontracting Opportunities – helps to identify subcontracting opportunities.
  • Set-Aside Certifications - guides the business through what is needed to plan and pursue federal government contracting certifications.
  • Federal Solicitations – analyzes the components of the federal solicitation process.
  • General Services Administration (GSA) Contracts – analyzes opportunities for GSA contracts.
“Access to digital and online training platforms remain critical to support women entrepreneurs with recovery and knowledge share. Over the last year, nearly 30,000 women entrepreneurs have leveraged the Ascent platform for its online education,” stated SBA Assistant Administrator for Office of Women’s Business Ownership, Natalie Madeira Cofield. “As women remain the fastest-growing entrepreneurial segment in the nation, and complementing our in-person centers, Ascent helps SBA reach more women where they are and when they need it.”

Ascent offers several key journeys to assist women business owners with strategies toward growth and success, including Disaster & Economic Recovery, Strategic Marketing, Your People, Your Business Financial Strategy, and Access to Capital. Each journey contains content and tools needed to grow your business. Additional topics will be added over time.
