Improve your financial literacy in our one-day financial education workshops
Understand your numbers
Acceler8 courses teach you how to understand your business’s financial information. Stop making business decisions based on “gut feel” and how much money is in your bank account. Start making informed, strategic decisions based on a clear understanding of your true financial position.
Increase your business confidence
Acceler8 creates empowered, confident business women who have a strategic plan for growth. Most women want to grow their business but don’t know how. The Acceler8 program demystifies the process and shows you how. With knowledge comes power and the confidence to execute your plan.
Multiple pathways for learning
Everyone learns differently. We have created several pathways to improve your financial literacy and grow your business. Our Learning Centre is a library of videos, stories, tools, apps and technology. The Online Courses are perfect for those who prefer self-paced learning. Acceler8 Academy is a face-to-face learning environment exclusively for women.
Join our peer support network
Sometimes being a woman in business can be lonely. Who do you turn to for solutions to problems, new ideas or “how to” advice? The Acceler8 program creates an environment of supportive peer based learning, that fosters collaboration, connection and networking.
