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 on Thursdays from 12 -1 pm or via Zoom. Registration for the six-week series is $50 and classes will be held either in person or by ZOOM. Attendees will also receive free use of LivePlan business planning software during the accelerator program.
