Laine Business Accelerator

The Laine Business Accelerator’s goal is to create an entrepreneurial community in the area and provide business owners with mentorship, resources, knowledge, and connections to grow their business.  It is a 13-week program and was launched by Olean Business Development Corp, Small Business Development Center, St. Bonaventure, JCC, and Cutco to name a few.

They are looking for business owners that want to take 5-10 hours a week to work on their business vs in their business to really start growing/ scaling.  Last year they gave away $35k to the 5 participating businesses.  This year they’re going to give away $50,000, and their goal is to get 100 applicants and to pick 10 businesses.

The deadline for applications for this year’s program is July 15.
