WHO WE ARE
Aviatra Accelerators (formerly Bad Girl Ventures, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2010. Our statewide organization enables women to start and sustain businesses by giving them the resources they need to be successful. Through our expertise in business basics, guidance from mentors and coaches, and access to capital, we continuously encourage our members to move forward, and we embrace them when they return, helping to refuel and reignite their passions.
What started as an opportunity to help women-owned businesses in one city has grown into a statewide organization, educating hundreds of female entrepreneurs. From its inception in 2010, Aviatra’s effectiveness has been proven as it rapidly has grown to serve over 1,500 women throughout Ohio and Northern Kentucky, and help secure nearly $1,000,000 in low-interest loans. Our women have received over $10 million in follow-on funding and have generated over $240 million in sales revenue upon completion of our program.
If you're a woman with a business, or have a business idea, we can help you. You and your business are unique, that's why we don't have a one-size-fits-all approach. We offer three different programs tailored to meet your needs. Each phase addresses the most critical education, best practices and guidance needed at any stage.
