LaGrange County EDC Announces Second Business Accelerator Program
 
LaGrange, IN (June 8. 2016) - The LaGrange County Economic Development Corporation is accepting applications for the second cohort of the LaGrange County Business Accelerator Program. The accelerator provides assistance to businesses looking to take on new products or services to help them plan and achieve their potential. Existing businesses and new startups located in LaGrange County are welcome to apply.
 
Graduates of the first cohort, inventive furniture venture Modifi and specialty food company Mandy's Harvest, speak highly of how their accelerator experiences helped prepare them for the challenges of developing innovative businesses.
 
The accelerator program stimulates rapid progress via an intense 10-week curriculum, along with additional assistance as needed. The program focuses on creating and validating the venture's business model, understanding the operational elements needed to achieve success, grasping the financial components needed to fund operations, and articulating the venture's vision. For those seeking bank financing or investor funding, the program also builds upon the base business model to create the necessary business plan and presentation deck. The program is facilitated by an individual who walks participants through a structured set of the issues faced by everyone creating or growing a company.

The cohort is set to begin the fourth week of June and is expected to run through early- September. For more information on the program please contact the LaGrange County EDC at (260) 499-4994. Applications can be found at www.lagrangecountyedc.com.
