Business and Entrepreneurship

Nuestra Comunidad and its partners Epicenter Community and LISC Boston lead the Accelerate Boston business plan training program and competition that helps local entrepreneurs start businesses and invest in the community.

The program helps more than 50 local entrepreneurs annually develop their business concept into a business plan, secure financing, develop tools to market their business, and bring it to reality.  Startup entrepreneurs are paired with successful local business owners who serve as mentors as the new businesses get off the ground, grow, and create new economic opportunity in our neighborhood.
