Seed Spot seeks best and brightest entrepreneurs

Have an idea that’s going to help make the world a better place? Ever daydream about what it would look like if your vision came to life? Look no further, because Phoenix is home to Seed Spot, a nonprofit business incubator that helps entrepreneurs turn their world-changing dreams into realities. Arizona entrepreneurs are invited to enroll in SEED SPOT’s part-time and full-time venture programs by Friday, Aug. 15.

WHAT: Seed Spot will hold two programs this fall – a part-time (evening) program and a full-time (day) program – for passionate entrepreneurs who want to create socially-responsible, purpose-driven business plans. The part-time program is designed for entrepreneurs who are at the idea or early-concept stage of their venture. Through a 12-week curriculum, these entrepreneurs receive education, training, and support to refine their concept into a business model. This program is offered every Monday, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., from Sept. 8 to Nov. 24.

The full-time program is designed for entrepreneurs who may already have a service, prototype or product in the market, but need support validating all aspects of their business model to raise capital or contributions. Through a 14-week curriculum, these entrepreneurs receive formal education, mentorship, training, pitch practice, and more. This program is offered from Sept. 8 to Dec. 11 (specific hours TBD).

WHEN: The deadline to apply is Friday, Aug. 15 via www.seedspot.org/apply.

WHERE: Seed Spot, 2828 N. Central Ave., 7th Floor, Phoenix, 85004 (SW corner of Central Ave. & Thomas Road)

WHY: Seed Spot is one of six incubators in the country that focuses on social entrepreneurs – people who launch a product or service that benefits humanity. SEED SPOT provides curriculum, office space and a network
of advisors to help startups with business plan development, financial modeling, branding, marketing, operations, infrastructure and capital formation. Visit www.seedspot.org for more information.
