Startup Stillwater Accelerator Lunchtime Series for Entrepreneurs

Launch your new business with Startup Stillwater Accelerator, a six-week series aimed to get your new business off the ground, out of the garage and into reality. Whether you have a business idea, a functional prototype or are already selling in the market, these sessions will help you accelerate your success.

Sessions are offered during lunchtime, so you won’t need to quit your day job to refine your business idea. Between sessions, participants will be expected to complete tasks relevant to their startups, such as customer identification, sales and marketing channels, financial projections, milestones, and key resources.

Startup Stillwater Accelerator sessions meet weekly from 11:30 am -1 pm at the Riata Center Downtown, 623 S. Main St. Registration for the six-week series is $75, which includes class materials and lunch during each meeting. Attendees will also receive free use of LivePlan business planning software during the accelerator program.
