EO Accelerator Program Headed to the Boise Valley

via BSU TECenter news release

The TECenter and Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), are partnering to bring the EO Accelerator Program to the Boise Valley. This joint venture will complement the TECenter’s goal of growing the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Idaho. Currently, TECenter provides incubation space and training programs for early stage startups than range between $0 and $10M in annual revenue. EO provides a structured way for CEO’s of $1M+ companies to share experiences peer-to-peer, utilizing their real business experiences.

Slated to begin Spring of 2015, the two-year intensive program is aimed at getting companies from $250K to $1M in annual revenue. Companies applying to the program must have at least $250K in annual revenue to be considered. The Accelerator program will be housed at the TECenter. Current TECenter clients that meet the criteria will be encouraged to apply.

“This partnership is a natural fit for us. We know EO to be a very high quality organization and when we heard they were interested in bringing an Accelerator to the Treasure Valley, we knew it would be a good opportunity to team up. We think the Accelerator program will become a strong part of our overall program here at the TECenter. We’re very excited to combine efforts with EO to help give Treasure Valley companies a way in which to rapidly grow.” said Will Fowler, Program Manager at BSU TECenter

Along with structured educational content focused on the core areas of first-stage businesses, the Accelerator Program affords the unique experience of learning from, and connecting with the world’s most influential entrepreneurs.

Tuition for the Accelerator Program is currently $1,500 per participant (excluding additional local fees). The initial class will be limited to 15 members which will eventually grow to a maximum of 30. This fee grants you access to four quarterly learning events, as well as numerous opportunities with your peers. Upon acceptance into a local Accelerator program, these fees will be pro-rated from your start date through June 30 to align with a July 1 to June 30 fiscal year.

The EO Accelerator meetings will take place at:

TECenter
5465 Terra Linda Way
Nampa, ID 83687

The first meeting time is tentatively scheduled for 3/4/15 at 9:00 am.
