The Small Business Development Center’s (SBDC) Business Accelerators help emerging companies rapidly grow in the Treasure Valley. The SBDC has two unique Accelerator spaces one in Boise and one in Nampa. These spaces offer everything from industrial space to finished office space. Accelerators offer one-on-one business consulting, and innovative programs aimed at giving companies the right resources at the right time. The SBDC works with Accelerator clients in three ways:
- Each Accelerator has a lead business consultant who is available to advise companies on an ongoing basis.
- The Accelerators also have structured programs that companies experience together in cohorts.
- There are ongoing skill-based trainings to help companies acquire the skills needed to run and grow business operations.
Companies accepted into our Accelerators are given 30 day leases with pricing that includes; internet, mailbox, workroom access, utilities, 1:1 consulting and discounted program offerings. Accelerator companies are expected to grow and eventually graduate in the general time horizon of approximately 3 years.
