Meet the Entrepreneurs of 2016!

Behind the fifteen businesses selected for the inaugural class of the WEI incubator, are a diverse group of Atlantans, reflecting the City’s multicultural landscape. These women entrepreneurs embody the spirit of Atlanta now and what it continuously strives to be – an inclusive, engaged and welcoming City where talent is equalized, championed and empowered. Curated from more than 100 applicants, the women business owners of the inaugural WEI class demonstrate the compelling reason why women must have full participation in the economic vitality of our entrepreneurial ecosystem – their businesses are innovative, relevant and answering the call of consumer demand.

Who Can Apply?

Entry into the WEI Incubator is a competitive process, designed to curate from a pool of highly qualified candidates. While the scalability and sustainability of the business models is critical to the selection process, WEI also considers several factors specific to the woman who runs the business:

Is she passionate, focused and demonstrative of running a business based on purpose, not just profit?
Is she leading a business reflective of the city of Atlanta’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, as well as integrity and professional excellence?
Is she open and enthusiastic to coaching, mentoring and the constructive feedback inherent to the WEI advisory process?

What are the Requirements?

The following baseline criteria was used for selecting the 2016-2017 participants, and should be considered relevant to the future selection process:

  • Woman-owned business, locally based, who reside in and/or are licensed to do business, within the city of Atlanta
  • Business maturity of 2 years and/or:
    • Total profit from business of $30,000
    • 1-5 employees
    • Submission of application and participation in pitch competition to selection panel

The WEI Incubator runs for a period of fifteen (15) months, and the application period for the current class is now closed. The first WEI class of entrepreneurs has been selected, and will be announced soon. Although we are not yet accepting applications for the next class, we encourage you to stay informed about WEI by subscribing to our mailing list here.
