Small Businesses Accelerator for Income Growth and Sustainability

What is the 7 Pillars™ Sustainable Business Accelerator?

They support small businesses by providing deep business supports for income growth and sustainability. Their 7 Pillars™ Accelerator advances small businesses through specialized technical assistance and connects these businesses directly to revenue and growth opportunities.

The 7 Pillars™ Accelerator integrates into the existing incubator/accelerator ecosystem by specializing: strategically on “last mile”; demographically on small businesses led by minorities, disadvantaged persons and/or located in low-to-moderate income communities; and Sector-wise on a subset of business that will be determined from time-to-time.

What are the 7 Pillars™?

The 7 Pillars™ are: Strategy + Technology + Communication + Finance + Legal + Capital + People.

They believe with all 7 Pillars™ your business is structured to grow. Without one of the 7 Pillars™ they believe your business is taking undue risk of losing market share in its industry.
