“It’s so confusing and frustrating to start a new business. It can feel overwhelming and isolating. There are endless to-do lists and many unforeseen barriers. Programs like The Entrepreneurial Accelerator create solutions to these problems.”
Why business owners struggle
According to the Small Business Association (SBA), the reason for this is inadequate planning, lack of specific experience, insufficient capital, poor location, inadequate market understanding, and marginal customer service.
The great news is that the journey doesn’t have to be walked alone.
How The Entrepreneurial Accelerator Helps
The Entrepreneurial Accelerator (TEA) provides support for entrepreneurs to test the feasibility of their ideas, complete comprehensive business plans, clarify assets, develop resources, and build relationships as they progress forward.
TEA is broken into 3 primary features:
Inclusive Learning Lab
The Entrepreneurial Accelerator provides IDA Approved, high quality, yet practical, interactive workshops. These workshops, or learning labs, have valuable outcomes that help participants enhance or expand knowledge of vital business concepts.
Asset Building Lab
The Entrepreneurial Accelerator provides useful Technical Assistance and technology to help create and enhance assets in participants’ businesses. Participants obtain assistance around assets like one-page websites, graphics, headshots, podcasts, video, etc..
The Entrepreneurial Accelerator provides a menu of helpful resources through our partnerships.

Participants walk away with 1:1 coaching, workshop registration, and new contacts and connections.
Participants move room to room, station to station getting exactly what they need whether it is product photos for their website, assistance applying for funding, or help writing a business plan.
