NACCE Welcomes Five Colleges to the Everyday Entrepreneur Venture Fund Program Phase II
The National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) is thrilled to announce the acceptance of five institutions into the Everyday Entrepreneur Venture Fund (EEVF) Program Phase II. EEVF is a signature pilot program that serves to build a sustainable system that launches new businesses by leveraging community college resources. With an eye towards innovation, diversity, inclusion and local economic growth, the program provides training, mentoring, seed funding and loans to would-be entrepreneurs who are women, people of color, veterans and others who do not qualify for traditional financing.
“We are delighted to build on the success of the first phase of the EEVF pilot by onboarding five leading community colleges that will work together to leverage existing academic resources, spur local matching dollars, and create new everyday businesses. This work has never been more important than it is today with the national and global crises at hand. NACCE is working diligently to raise additional funds to support these colleges in their efforts and to provide matching dollars for their local communities,” said Rebecca Corbin, president & CEO of NACCE.
The partnership between NACCE and the Everyday Entrepreneur Venture Fund (EEVF) addresses one of the most urgent needs of our country – that of supporting local economies via entrepreneurship. Please join us in welcoming the following colleges to the EEVF Program:
