Since 1995, Alberta Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) has provided tools and resources to women across the province to help them achieve their entrepreneurial goals and to grow their businesses. For over 28 years, AWE has built a network of successful educational and mentorship programs built around our core values: Capital, Connection, and Capacity.
We have connected women with access to capital, training and workshops, business advising, and our loans programs. As the business landscape evolves, we have also added support to women looking to grow their businesses and how to expand into new markets through our progressive growth programs: BOLD Leadership, and Strategic Edge - Leadership For Growth we provide established entrepreneurs with the tools necessary to adapt to the digital landscape, grow their businesses and expand to new markets. We are also proud to provide specialized services and resources for local Indigenous entrepreneurs through our advising team as well as hosting training programs throughout the year.
