AUA Equity established an accelerator program in March 2016 to support minority and women-owned enterprises lacking the resources to fulfill their vision of success.

The goal is to “accelerate” 3 – 5 companies per year through mentorship and access to AUA Equity’resource base: operating executives, industry experts, and an advisory council of third party service providers.
