SBA Accelerator Competition

By: Rob Adams on August 16, 2014

One month ago we applied to the SBA Growth Accelerator Fund on behalf of the startup weekend program we ran in May, Rocket City Launch. We were notified yesterday that we are one of the finalists! This is great news! If we’re one of the final selections Rocket City Launch will receive a $50,000 grant to help new advanced manufacturing based businesses start up in Madison and the greater Huntsville area.

But we need your help! The SBA asks for a 5 minute video as our final submission. We want to show them how much of our entrepreneurial community is behind us. If you have an idea that you’d like to turn into a business, are working on that idea now, or just want (like we do) to see great new businesses start up here in North Alabama then come on out to MindGear from 5-7 pm! We are going to video all the folks that are rooting us on and prove to the SBA that there is a thriving entrepreneurial community here that they should support!

    Rob, I am so proud of you and your team! I pray that you all receive the grant!

    Thanks Brynetta! I think we have a good chance.
