Local Entrepreneur Acceleration Program

By: SC Community Loan Fund



HOW IT WORKS

LEAP is an intensive ten week course during which small business owners expand their business knowledge. The course culminates in participants refining their business plans and presenting them for a chance to win a capital investment. The three entrepreneurs with the strongest business plans will receive $5,000, $10,000 or $30,000 startup capital awards. All LEAP graduates leave the program with the ability to seek business financing as well as a comprehensive business plan.
