We're excited to announce that we've just launched the first-ever Good Jobs Accelerator! The Accelerator is tailored to the needs of our small businesses and based on our hands-on advising model. It's the first accelerator specifically designed to create good jobs. As part of the inaugural cohort, we've selected 10 companies that have completed our educational offerings, are poised for rapid growth, and are led by entrepreneurs who are committed to creating good jobs.

The inaugural Good Jobs Accelerator companies are:

Red Door Catering
Café Fanny
Mr. Sparkle Window Washers
Eby Construction
Onigilly
AGW Screen Works
4505 Meats
Spotlight:Girls
Chop Plentii
and Reem’s

Together, through 2017, they are projected to create over 200 local jobs.

We've also enlisted various professional service providers, capital providers, and workforce development partners to support Accelerator companies over the 9-month Accelerator. Thanks to their partnership and the support of our Advisory Board, the Accelerator not only provides tailored advising but provides an entire ecosystem of support for our small businesses. Check out the 10 inaugural companies in the accelerator here!
