How Can an Accelerator Help You?
The accelerator model supports economic development for rural communities in the following ways and can help you accelerate your opportunity:
Focuses: small business | incremental growth
We know that small business is the growth engine of the country, and rather than looking for a single industry fix, we think this program helps communities diversify their economy.
Allows: a community to shape a sector
That works with their official community plan and unique elements of their area. There’s no one size fits all prescription, however, this model can boost the sectors that have the best chance of success and can inject growth into a rural economy.
Builds: capacity around business acumen
Not only will the entrepreneurs learn from our program, but also they will learn from each other and their mentors.
Builds: community in the business sector
They find shared issues that can lead to economies of scale, they uncover new business opportunities, and they are able to speak with a more unified voice when necessary. Working in an intensive time frame is a great way to strengthen connections.
Marketing: happens at scale
Small businesses can leverage the sector success by associating themselves with a broader marketing platform and the community is able to showcase the richness of a sector, which benefits an individual business, the sector and the community as a whole.
