Congratulations to the graduates of the Business Accelerator Series!
Over the last 10 weeks, 13 small business owners met each Thursday evening for an intensive study in building their business. On Friday, June 28 the Dream It – Start It – Grow It Business Accelerator Series culminated in Pitch Fest, giving each participant the chance perform their business pitches and win $2,000 in seed funds to continue growing their business.
With topics ranging from defining a target audience, market research, obtaining funding and budget creation, marketing, and more, these businesses are poised to grow. The development of their business pitches has put them in the position to seek funding from outside sources by showcasing their ideas, plans, and sustainability in the best possible light.
While all business owners put in a tremendous amount of time and effort, one stood out from the crowd.
