Press Release Information

The Laine Business Accelerator is back for round 2! Last time we gave world-class mentorship, business skills, and $35,000 to 5 small businesses in our community. The Accelerator is excited to announce that we are not just trying to repeat this program, but we are expanding it! Our application opens on June 1st, and they will be accepting applicants through July 15th. The Accelerator will run from September to December of this year and they are offering up to 10 businesses a split amount of $50,000. They will continue to provide mentorship, learning opportunities, and interns to help expand your business. Information sessions will be June 7th, June 22nd, and July 7th to help provide information on the Accelerator and application process. The application and sign-ups for the information sessions are all on our website: Growing the community and helping small businesses flourish is one of their main goals during the Accelerator.

The Laine Business Accelerator Program launched our business in many ways. Through mentorship and guidance, we learned how to solidify our company structure and are now set on a course to scale our business in ways we never thought possible. The real investment was the time and expertise we received. We are so excited for the next cohort to develop businesses in Cattaraugus county.
