Startup Shenandoah Valley Accepting Applications for Business Incubator Program

According to a press release, the Shenandoah Community Capital Fund is now accepting applications for the fourth cohort of Startup Shenandoah Valley, or S2V.  Startup Shenandoah Valley is the region’s hybrid online/in-person incubator program for scalable businesses. The fourth cohort will be focused on tech and tech enabled companies, but all companies are still encouraged to apply. Companies selected for Startup Shenandoah Valley will have access to resources, mentors, and investors in and beyond the region.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until Friday, February 24th.

Companies selected for the program will take part in an eight-week implementation “sprint” beginning March 14th, 2022, with one-on-one virtual coaching, tailored mentoring, and support on all aspects of running a successful scalable business – such as raising capital, recruiting and retaining top talent, marketing, and legal issues, among others.   Most importantly, participants will become part of an invaluable alumni network of the Valley’s best companies and a growing entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Shenandoah Community Capital Fund (SCCF) is a 501©3 non-profit organization that envisions a Shenandoah Valley where every person has access to the resources, knowledge, and support needed to start, grow, and sustain a business.
