Social Enterprise Greenhouse is now accepting applications for its first Accelerator for ‘Do Well, Do Good’ Health & Wellness Businesses
Providence, Rhode Island (June 15, 2016) – Social Enterprise Greenhouse (SEG) is now accepting applications for its first Accelerator for ‘Do Well, Do Good’ Health & Wellness businesses. SEG is looking for motivated and coachable social entrepreneurs with a feasible Health & Wellness venture to apply. Applications are due July 3, 2016.
The Accelerator, SEG’s signature venture development program, includes a 12-week blended learning model developed and delivered in collaboration with Brown University. Throughout the three months, each of the social enterprises work to refine, formalize, and grow their social mission with the support of SEG’s community of coaches and advisors. Additional value is provided by one-on-one business coaching, a peer-learning cohort model, and access to SEG’s co-working space at 10 Davol Square, Providence. Upon graduation, participants will receive priority access to the SEG Loan Fund that provides below market interest rate loans to high potential social enterprises as well as later stage business services.
The Health & Wellness Accelerator is made possible in partnership with MedMates and with support from the Department of Labor and Training Real Jobs RI program and Delta Dental, and aims to provide health and wellness businesses with the tools they need to solve pressing health and wellness social issues facing our communities.
“We are so excited to be funding this program as part of the Real Jobs Rhode Island initiative! We asked our community partners to help us identify workforce and economic development solutions within each sector of our local economy because we knew that if we wanted to move the needle, we had to start thinking outside of the box. MedMates and Social Enterprise Greenhouse answered the call with this innovative plan to deliver incumbent worker training and resources to our local job creators.” – Scott Jensen, Director, RI Department of Labor and Training
