The Accelerated Access team at PARO Centre for Women's Enterprise understands the complexities of not-for-profit and co-operative business and are committed to helping them expand their capacity so that they may better service their communities.
We are available to assist new not-for-profit and co-operative organizations through their start-up phase; from advising and navigating through the complex not-for-profit status application and co-operative incorporation process, to developing and implementing strategic plans.
Existing organizations can also benefit from the experience of Accelerated Access through the development of customized funding strategies, proposals, and intelligent plans for sustainable growth.
Women entrepreneurs can benefit from the experience of Accelerated Access through working with PARO Business Counsellors to identify their business expansion goals, and then, working to expand their training, markets, and networks. Contact Rosalind Lockyer at email@example.com or Stacia Kean at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"PARO was- and continues to be- a great source of support for our Centre as we embark on our own journey towards micro-enterprise and micro-lending for women in Hamilton. The PARO staff provided a framework for our team, building our Centre's capacity to deliver programming to immigrant support women taking the steps towards entrepreneurship and economic participation. The Immigrant Women's Centre is about to embark on our first micro-lending initiative- a first for the Hamilton area as well- and feel well equipped as a result of the support and training we have received from PARO."
