I have enrolled my startup Fitsme Fashion into the 14 week PreFlight Accelerator program at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center to assist with our launch. I have been involved with the EC since its start in 2010, even serving as a mentor one year. It was my turn to be on the other side of the table and to connect with other great mentors.
As per its website, “The EC fosters innovation and entrepreneurship by Turning Ideas Into Reality, helping to start businesses and create jobs. As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, the Center is funded through sponsorships, partnerships, donations and grants. The EC relies on support from leading corporations, successful entrepreneurs and those who have a vested interest in the Center’s success.”
I received a grant from the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashville (whose 7 Principal belief system includes the principal that “Everybody has worth and dignity”) to start making prototypes over a year ago. Since then, I have talked and met with many inspiring folks who have helped me to perfect our products.
