A new St. Louis incubator plans to sponsor a young entrepreneur for a year to help turn a business idea into a reality.
Derek Weber, the president and co-founder of marketing agency goBRANDgo!, wants to turn a vacant school building into a center for entrepreneurs. That building would house the go!-celerator, a program that is now looking for applicants.
Weber wants to pick an innovator born in 1983 or later and let that innovator work on an idea for an entire year. The accelerator would provide free housing, a food allowance, mentoring, marketing help and office space. The program takes no equity but also provides no seed funding.
Applications are due March 14 and can be submitted on the go!-celerator website.
