Breedlove Accelerator is a YWCA Metropolitan Chicago program supporting later-stage women of color entrepreneurs who are the majority owners of their businesses, have at least 2 years of experience running their business, and have annual revenues of $100,000+ that are undercapitalized. We believe that with adequate funding and support, all entrepreneurs can have a catalytic impact on the communities they serve.

Black Women are the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs with over 1.5M businesses – an increase of 322% since 1997.
