Introducing the C.Entr
Located at the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance building, the new Center for Entrepreneurship (C.Entr) will create a centralized hub to support entrepreneurship in the Lynchburg region. We'll have space to support creativity and collaboration, assistance for funding and planning, opportunities for business development, training and mentoring programs, and a diverse array of support services to make starting a business easier.
Developing the Physical Space Needed to Help Build Community
Approximately 3,000 square feet of space within the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance facility will be dedicated to entrepreneurs, as well as engaging other facilities in the region.
Increasing Access to Capital
A top priority, and one of the most often mentioned needs for the region, will be to increase the access to capital for entrepreneurs and startups. We're already on our way with the creation of the 140 Fund.
The C.Entr will support the development and hosting of between 4 to 6 regional business development events each year.
Training and Development
The C.Entr will support the development and hosting of between 4 to 6 training events each year focused on the knowledge, skills, and abilities required by entrepreneurs.
Developing and Offering a Portfolio of Support Services
The C.Entr will support the development of a support services network specific to entrepreneurs and will make a portfolio of these services available to regional entrepreneurs.
