The Erie Minority-Owned Business Accelerator Builds a Supportive Ecosystem to Launch and Grow Black Businesses
The Erie Minority-Owned Business Accelerator, led by Bridgeway Capital and financed by the Erie County Gaming and Revenue Authority (ECGRA), has been valuable for early-stage entrepreneurs as they navigate the pandemic. During a time of uncertainty, the Accelerator program offered a supportive space to develop, test, and launch new business ventures with a trusted network of advisors and peers. The accelerator has graduated 10 entrepreneurs from the program and welcomes 7 entrepreneurs to begin the program in late August 2021. Participants will engage in nine months of extensive mentoring and one-on-one tailored assistance focused on business planning and strategy.
