Eat local ~ Food Accelerator Launch at Social Enterprise Greenhouse ~ Providence

Social Enterprise Greenhouse
10 Davol Square
Providence, Rhode Island


From their website:
Social Enterprise Greenhouse creates positive social and economic impacts by supporting social entrepreneurs and enterprises with the tools and networks they need to thrive. We are a network of business and community leaders who contribute time, expertise and money to create jobs and support positive change through social enterprise.
Last night they launched their Food Accelerator Program, wherein twelve local startup food business owners will participate in 12 weeks of training with a mentor to help them acquire the acumen to sustain and expand their businesses.

In general, the social enterprise aspect for all these businesses is healthy, local food.

The launch was a chance to sample the cohort members' products, meet with them and the mentors, and talk healthy food and social enterprise. I'm excited about this industry-specific program, and will be watching to see others come down the pipeline.
