EforAll SouthCoast June accelerator program attracts participants

 

NEW BEDFORD — Even though most businesses are facing a tough time right now, local entrepreneurs still want to participate in Entrepreneurship for All’s (EforAll) Business Accelerator Program that starts in June, according to Donna Criscuolo, executive director of EforAll South Coast.

 

 

Criscuolo said the nonprofit reached out to the program’s applicants after the coronavirus began to hit the area to see if they wanted to move forward with their application, and they did.

 

 

“People feel like now is the time to get the education that they need to start a business,” Criscuolo said, “They are feeling empowered about taking control of their destiny and future in terms of creating a business.”

 

 

Criscuolo called the decision to move forward with the program a testament to the heart and soul of an entrepreneur — regardless of the situation they move forward and pivot.

 

 

“We typically work with early stage entrepreneurs, but we do work with people that have been in business and are wondering how to get to the next level,” Criscuolo said.
