As our regionís largest network of social enterprise incubators, SEED SPOT connects impact-focused local entrepreneurs with the resources they need to succeed. Business owners from under-represented identities often face barriers to accessing social and financial capital. SEED SPOT empowers these entrepreneurs in the early stages to launch and grow their businesses. During Launch Camp, they hone their business models, connect with mentors and industry experts, and pitch their ventures. Those ready to scale participate in the 10-week Impact Accelerator, receiving structured guidance as they define their strategies, build their teams, and enter the market. Additional programs tailored to specific communities uplift more founders in under-served places like Prince Georgeís County. SEED SPOT builds an inclusive and thriving ecosystem, helping grow the number of local entrepreneurs by 600% over the last four years.
