Small Business Accelerator

Starting a business in an entrepreneurial environment allows the small business owner to focus on being successful.

 The Small Business Accelerator provides clients with business support services and community resources to help them survive and grow during the start-up period. Direct management assistance, and technical and support services are provided to clients.

 Small businesses are the fastest growing segment in American commerce and create 98% of all new jobs. Over 50% of small businesses fail in the first year, and 80% within five years. Often entrepreneurs know how to produce "the work," but lack the skills necessary for operating a business. Equally important, are start-up costs and fixed expenses of operation, which drain hard pressed capital.

 Our primary mission is to ensure accelerator businesses are financially viable.

 Small businesses need a professional atmosphere, business advice, and office equipment but often cannot afford it. Incubator tenants have the advantage of all these and more.
