Founded in 1761, Berkshire County includes over 30 cities and towns — from North Adams to Otis — and everything in between. EforAll launched to great fanfare across all of Berkshire County in Fall 2019 and is excited to support local entrepreneurs!
The Accelerator is a free, one-year program offered twice a year in EforAll communities. It provides immersive business training, mentorship and access to an extended professional network. Anyone with a dream to start or grow a business is encouraged to apply.
Fast-paced, fun community events that enable early-stage entrepreneurs to gain valuable exposure and feedback on a business idea at no cost. Great opportunity to network and validate business idea with potential to win a cash prize from EforAll.
