Where will your next generation of companies come from? We can help you develop them from the entrepreneurs in your community. We focus on mobilizing and coordinating the efforts of existing organizations (SBDC’s, SCORE, colleges/universities, angel investors, etc.) and adding programs that cover gaps in the support fabric. The goal is to create a welcoming and supportive entrepreneurial ecosystem that will encourage the growth of start-ups and emerging growth companies. We have experience in setting up and managing:
- Business Plan Competitions
- Access to Resources
