NACCE and Bridge for Billions Team Up to Offer "The Leap" to Community College Entrepreneurs Across
The National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) has launched a partnership with Bridge for Billions that offers NACCE's national community college network an opportunity to explore The Leap, a three-month, online incubation program that takes early-stage entrepreneurs from business concept to execution business plan via an online, interactive platform leveraging proprietary and effective proven methodology. Collaborative personal, practical and peer support guides entrepreneurs through an intuitive process with the help of a mentor who can provide critical objective revision and connect them to a larger ecosystem. Participants in The Leap not only exit the program with a sustainable plan of action, but with a sense of confidence and a clear view of their potential for success.
"The Leap has the ability to provide an additional layer of virtual support as colleges across the nation innovate and learn to navigate the new normal. We are excited to work with Bridge for Billions to bring The Leap to member colleges interested in expanding their system of support, fostering new entrepreneurs with the common belief that together we can create sustainable opportunities for all," stated Dr. Rebecca Corbin, NACCE President and CEO.
Bridge for Billions and NACCE will co-host an informational webinar on August 18, 2020, that will introduce community colleges to The Leap incubation program and platform, the Bridge for Billions mission, and the opportunities that this partnership can provide to entrepreneurs across the nation through the community college ecosystem.
"We're excited about the opportunity to collaborate with NACCE and their member colleges. Our mission at Bridge for Billions is to democratize the access to quality entrepreneurship programming to any and all aspiring entrepreneurs. To be carrying out this mission with NACCE is an honor as students are the leaders of tomorrow!" stated Pablo Santaeufemia, Bridge for Billions Co-Founder and CEO.
