Calling all aspiring and early-stage entrepreneurs! The Town of Carrboro is partnering with The Business Accelerator Group (BAG) and the Durham Tech Small Business Center to host some business accelerator programs starting in April.
Get practical, actionable business training from experienced advisors and support from peers in the same boat.
There are two groups (or cohorts) that will meet once a week for five weeks:
Cohort 1 is for aspiring entrepreneurs, folks looking to launch their idea.
Cohort 2 is for small business owners who have been in business from one to five years.
Ten to 15 members will be accepted into each cohort. Each BAG cohort meets weekly for five weeks, from mid-April through late May. Sessions are 1.5 hours in length and are in-person in Carrboro, NC. We will follow local masking guidelines and keep social distance during sessions.
What To Expect
- Education on essential small business topics.
- Coaching on how to implement the work for your business.
- Support from a cohort of entrepreneur peers.
The Business Accelerator Group is $195 per business, with scholarships up to $170 available (a cost of $25 to the business). A second business owner may attend for no additional cost.
The application is due by 11:59 p.m. on March 27, 2022. Selected applicants will be notified by April 1. Please direct all questions to Kate Wiggins at firstname.lastname@example.org
