Event description

Description

Thinking about starting a business in SW Florida? Got an idea and not sure how to develop it or bring it to market? Looking for seed funding? Here's your chance to startup FAST!

FAST is an acronym for Florida Accelerator for Startup Training. It's a new program sponsored by the SW Florida Enterprise Center, City of Fort Myers, StartupBiz.com, and many other local sponsors and supporters. FAST is a 9-week training program culminating in a 'Shark Tank' style pitch competition with cash and in-kind prizes valued at more than $25,000.

You don't have to give up your "day job" to explore entrepreneurship. You also don't need to be a Millennial. More people in their 40's and 50's are starting businesses today than are younger people. At FAST, we have a proven curriculum and an awesome group of successful entrepreneurs, investors, mentors and speakers to help you on your journey. It's time to start your dream company!

This is a FREE event where you can learn all about the 9-week accelerator program, pitch your idea, and get feedback. But seating is LIMITED. You must RSVP to reserve a seat.

A networking social will follow the session at the Millennial Brewing Company, so if you can't make the info session, join us for the social!
