The Emerging Contractor Accelerator helps Black-owned contracting businesses strengthen operations and bidding strategies to increase revenue.
The Emerging Contractor Accelerator prepares participants to identify, secure, and manage large-scale construction projects that take participants to higher levels of profitability and success. Bridgeway will select up to seven participants through an application process and guide them through three focus areas: business fundamentals, bidding, and securing contracts. We worked with experts in the construction sector to design an accelerator specific to the needs of emerging Black contractors. Facilitated by industry leaders, this intensive accelerator will pair peer and expert-driven learning with individualized guidance and support. Participants will be eligible for up to $4,000 of support in coaching and consulting services to kickstart new goals. Each session walks through the elements of securing and managing contracts for construction projects to help participants graduate with clear financial goals and a plan in place with the resources to achieve them.
