Rediscover Your Future
Downtown Hillsboro

Entrepreneur Programs Help Individuals and Businesses Survive and Thrive Amid Recession

--A program to help dislocated workers explore and expand their potential as entrepreneurs--

Building a strong business future in Washington County is the focus of a new business incubator located in downtown Hillsboro: Green Sustainable Business Accelerator (GSBA).

GSBA offers a new approach to successful entrepreneurship. Instead of fruitless job searches, sending out dozens of resumes and experiencing the reality that a job might be unattainable in the present economy, we offer hope and help to those who would like to take a different approach by creating their own business. Those who embark on that venture need a strong support network and mentoring to be successful. GSBA offers that and more.

The Kauffman FastTrac® LaunchPad initiative is being offered in response to the many workers who have lost their jobs and businesses that are struggling due to the current economic environment. It is a proven fact that entrepreneurship plays a key role in getting America back on the road to recovery. Over 300,000 entrepreneurs have participated in FastTrac® programs.

To apply for the program, or to receive more information, please visit: http://www.gsbaccelerator.org/future.html Call Dan Smith at (866)638-1097 Or e-mail: [email protected]

Cost: FREE

Sponsor: The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
