The Accelerator Challenge is an intensive business development program designed to boost emerging entrepreneurs who are starting up, approaching launch or a high growth stage.

Through a qualifying application process, participants are selected for the opportunity to get a boost for their business concept, start-up or high growth strategy through funding, resources and strategic guidance.

The Challenge kicks off with a three-day “Business Launch Boot Camp”; followed by monthly full-day sessions. The program culminates with a “Pitch Day” where participants have the opportunity to pitch to angel investors.

Throughout the program, participants are eligible to “pitch” their ideas for project funding from a pool and take advantage of special opportunities, such as no cost or low cost space at SDTBC.

If you have questions about the entrepreneurial programs or how they may meet your needs contact Tom Stengrim at SDTBC, or (605) 275-8009.
