Business Resource Center
EforAll is a nonprofit organization that helps entrepreneurs start and grow a business. Our mission is to accelerate economic and social impact through inclusive entrepreneurship.
They offer two main programs: a Business Accelerator and Pitch Contest. The Business Accelerator is a free, one-year program that provides intensive business training, mentorship, and an extended professional network. The Pitch Contests are fast faced, community events where early stage entrepreneurs have an opportunity to sell their business and receive valuable feedback with the chance of winning a cash prize. They offer both programs in English and Spanish.
These programs are phenomenal opportunities that are free and open to the public. When they talk about inclusive entrepreneurship, they look to connect and support underrepresented and minoritized entrepreneurs throughout northwest Arkansas, which would include Washington and Benton County.
