New Business Accelerator in Clarkston
Village Capital will choose up to fifteen entrepreneurs for their new business accelerator program in Clarkston.
Village Capital is teaming up with Social Enterprise @ Goizueta at Emory University, Refugee Women’s Network, and the Clarkston Community Center for the launch of its first VilCap-Start business accelerator program. This exciting new venture supports mico-enterprises in the Clarkston community, and the program seeks to provide promising entrepreneurs with the skills necessary to develop sustainable businesses in Clarkston.
Fifteen entrepreneurs will be selected to participate in a 14-week intensive skills-based mentoring program, beginning in January 2013. The program is designed to connect participants with business leaders from across the Atlanta area. The participants will have the opportunity to present their prospective businesses to a panel of banking experts and receive feedback on how to get the financing they need to be successful in a competitive market. All sessions will take place one evening a week at the Clarkston Community Center.
The program pre-committed $30,000 of low-interest working capital loans to the three most promising entrepreneurs, which will be selected by the entrepreneurs themselves at the end of the program. VilCap-Start is accepting applications from aspiring Clarkston entrepreneurs.
