BLOOMINGTON -

An Indianapolis-based company that assists women entrepreneurs is growing its statewide footprint. The Startup Ladies, which currently has a presence in Indy and Terre Haute, has announced the launch of its Bloomington chapter.

In an email to Inside INdiana Business, Founder and Chief Executive Officer Kristen Cooper says the goal is to raise awareness about the inequities women founders face throughout the entire process of starting up and scaling a company, and provide resources to over come them. The company will hold its first meetup in Bloomington later this month.

"The Startup Ladies are so excited to be expanding to Bloomington this month," said Cooper. "We have members who have been making the trip to Indy for our events for years. Three of our interns are students at IU, Bloomington. Several women and men from the area have reached over the last year and asked when we were going to bring the programming to the area. Given the interest, academic, and economic development resources available in Monroe County, we thought this would be an ideal region to grow the next wave of women founders and women investors."

The meetup will take place January 31 at the Cup & Kettle Tea Co. in Bloomington, which Cooper says was specifically chosen because it is a woman-owned business. 

Cooper adds the company has received numerous requests from women throughout the Midwest and the east coast about launching The Startup Ladies chapters in their locations. She says they are examining potential locations for new chapters and the technology needed for easy access to the company's programming and investor network.
