We’re so excited to share that twelve businesses are graduating from Social Enterprise Greenhouse’s Impact Accelerator program on January 13. Since September, these entrepreneurs have worked diligently and creatively to further develop their businesses plans to solve emerging social, environmental, and economic challenges in our communities.
We have so many people to thank! SEG’s 2021 Impact Accelerator is supported by the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training’s Real Jobs RI Initiative, The Rhode Island Foundation, Citizens, the U.S. Economic Development Administration, and the Island Foundation. Citizens has also provided mentorship on banking to participants and is generously providing a $5,000 cash prize to one of the ventures.
Meet our graduating ventures below!
