Ad Astra, a local business accelerator, announced it graduated 15 founders from its Spring research-based training program which focuses on female entrepreneurs.
This is the fourth cohort to have completed the startup boot camp, which went virtual for the first time this spring.
“At Ad Astra, women entrepreneurs learn to become aware of unconscious biases and discover how they can combat these biases and act on this knowledge,” said Allison Long Pettine, Co-founder of Ad Astra. “When founders complete our program, they’re poised to grow investable companies and become exceptional leaders.”
Founded in 2018, the organization hosts boot camps and 12-week business accelerator programs for high-growth startups led by one or more females.
Ad Astra aims to build a global community of founders, investors, executives and philanthropists passionate about putting more women in leadership positions.
The cohort graduates include:

Jaan Biotherapeutics LLC
Qanik DX Inc
