Registration for this session is for week 2 of 5 in the Main Street Entrepreneur Accelerator (MSEA).

The Main Street Entrepreneurs Accelerator (MSEA) program is a training and pitch competition for student entrepreneurs and small business owners in Wake County, aimed at accelerating business growth. Funded by the Conlon Venture Fund and Mike Conlon, President/Owner of Affordable Communities Group, LLC, and a Wells Fargo grant, the program's goal is to reduce barriers and provide education so that entrepreneurs achieve greater, more sustainable success with their existing businesses.

Wake County small business owners and entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch for awards from $2,500 to $20,000 and student entrepreneurs can pitch for awards from $2,500 to $8,000 to help accelerate their business growth.

Any small business owner in Wake County is eligible to participate in the training. Pitch eligibility is listed on the website linked below.

Week 2: During this session you will learn how to tell the solution your company provides and define how it’s different from the problem. You will learn how to describe your product or service and the value that it brings to your customers. Business finances are integral to understanding and running a successful business and so as the second part of this session, you will also start calculating your business expenses.

Learning outcome: Share the solution that you provide in a compelling way to your customers. Calculate fixed and variable expenses for your business.

Note: This is session 2 of 5 of the Main Street Accelerator Entrepreneurship Program & Pitch Competition. Program details here.
