Many folks may not be familiar with EforAll Soutth Coast but you may recognize some of their current and past ventures, including Got Chew, No Joke Smoke BBQ, and Juice'd Cafe

In just the past two years, EforAll South Coast will have created 155 jobs and generated 1.7 million dollars in local revenue.  They have seen 47 ventures go through their Accelerator Program (a 12 week program that gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to move their businesses forward). In addition to that, roughly 100 start-up businesses have been involved in their Pitch Contests and have received over $100,000 in cash prizes to help their businesses grow.

These businesses and non-profits have created an impact in our local community by starting businesses where they saw a gap in services, creating jobs and generating revenue. What's better is that they want to invite people and their great business ideas to join them!
