Interested in growing your food-related non-profit or for-profit organization? Apply to participate in the inaugural class of The Health Enterprise Development Initiative (HEDI), a training program for entrepreneurs with the mission of promoting healthy local food systems.
This enterprise accelerator will meet in-person four times across 11 weeks, and online in the intermediate weeks. Selected entrepreneurs participate in a rapid development course in Sustainable Food & Agriculture and Sustainable Business, based on and taught by instructors from the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, plus materials from the Entrepreneurship programs of The Center for Inclusive Entrepreneurship and Kick. Through connections to mentors, MBA students, and financing organizations, they will better understand how to build a financially sustainable business and how to secure funding. See the full curriculum here.
Applications are due by February 14th.
HEDI is a collaboration between the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, Public Health Seattle King County, Slow Money Northwest, Kick (the “inclusive” incubator), and GPS Capital Partners. It is funded by Public Health Seattle King County and private funders.
