Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) began its second Accelerator Program in the South Coast May 2016 and this second cohort will graduate from the intensive 12 week program at an Award Celebration Wednesday September 7 at the Cultural Center in Fall River at 6pm. The 9 entrepreneurs, with a range of business ideas anywhere from a noodle bowl restaurant, to a guided journal company, to a water research institute, have been meeting two times a week learning from experts in the region and covering a variety of topics about business and entrepreneurship. With the help of an amazing group of mentors, the entrepreneurs have developed solid plans to take their business to the next level. The winners of the accelerator will share in a $15,000 prize pool that will be announced at this celebration.
Victoria Hall, owner of WORKINGURL Co. and participant in the first EforAll Accelerator Cohort in the South Coast will be the keynote speaker of the evening and we’ll also hear from a participant in the program. The public will be able to learn about all of the business ideas and speak with the entrepreneurs themselves as they’ll have their ideas and products on display. This cohort will continue to meet with their mentors for the rest of the year and meet with EforAll quarterly to compete for more cash. A new Accelerator Program will take place in New Bedford and Fall River this winter. To find out more, go to our website www.eforall.org
