March 15 – May 5, 2018

Cape & Plymouth Business has partnered with The Revolution Factory to bring to the region the first Small Business Accelerator program. This is a unique 8-week opportunity for small business owners to learn the skills they need as well as work with mentors who will help them scale their business to the next level.

Through this accelerator program, small businesses will be connected with resources and have access to industry-specific mentors that can guide you and your business as you build, grow, and scale your dream. The Revolution Company brings the programming and innovation training through already established initiatives in Boston.

For 8 weeks, small business owners will gather once a week on the Cape and once a month in Maynard to work intensively to get each company in the best shape possible. At the end of the program, each participant will showcase their company and their process at a culminating event to be held on the Cape in May 2018.  The weekly workshops are customized based on the needs of the participants and will be tailored to them.
