1. Training--C.E.O. Women has pioneered a 16-week training that includes financial literacy and entrepreneurship training while increasing English language skills.

2. Alumnae Support--C.E.O. Women's "Women Connected" alumnae support program includes individualized technical assistance, networking, mentoring, resources and referrals to assist graduates who are starting or growing their businesses.

3. Access to Capital--C.E.O. Women's "Venture Fund Awards" are $2,000 grants given to qualified women to aid in financing their micro-enterprises.
