Ascent Online Learning Platform for Women

Ascent is an interactive digital platform packed with resources women business owners need to set, and achieve, their business goals. Ascent is designed for the “missing middle” — growth-oriented women entrepreneurs who are beyond the start-up phase and already generating revenue yet looking to grow and scale. Most learning resources for business owners focus on either start-ups or mature businesses. Ascent is here to change that.

Ascent was created through a joint initiative between the White House, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau, and the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Bringing these agencies together provides Ascent users with unique access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise not found anywhere else.

During these challenging times, SBA’s Ascent offers research-backed tips and strategies, along with examination tools to identify both internal (strengths and weaknesses) and external factors (opportunities and threats) that may have arisen because of COVID-19 to help business owners create  a comprehensive recovery strategy. 

Ascent is a resource that is designed to be consistently helpful as one’s business grows and needs change.
