Allied Women Entrepreneurs  is generously supported by The Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado, All Star Cleaning Services, Colorado Vapors, The Fort Collins Brewery, Ace Gilletts Lounge, Judith Hamman, the Mainline, and more.  We are empowered women coming together as AWE to challenge ourselves and women in our community to be authentic, to connect, and to evolve.

About Allied Women Entrepreneurs:

Allied Women Entrepreneurs was incorporated on January 14, 2015 in Fort Collins, Colorado, as a state registered nonprofit corporation and received IRS 501(c)(3) designation shortly thereafter.  AWE’s founding members, Amber Hinds, Carolyn Spranger, Danielle Stringer, Darcy Peters, and Melinda Walker, all businesses owners in the Front Range, saw a need for a local organization to provide education and support for entrepreneurial women at all stages of business ownership. AWE’s mission is to empower women to reach their professional goals as entrepreneurs through education, networking, mentoring, and business development.  We offer monthly networking and educational events, in-depth workshops and classes, a mentorship program, and an online support forum.  Programs and services are open to women entrepreneurs at all stages of business ownership or management.  For additional information, please contact Amber Hinds at 307-696-5419 or [email protected].
