Institute For Entrepreneurs

The Institute for Entrepreneurs delivers a range of services for entrepreneurs.   The Institute has participated in $14,000,000 in funding and assists companies today in raising funding, accelerating revenue, and increasing profits. 

Shark Tanks and Forums offer small businesses an opportunity to meet with VC, angels, family offices, and private investors.  These funding venues are co-sponsored by government entities, clubs, and enterprises.  These forums also include students, opening the door to the next generation of entrepreneurs.

In addition to assistance with funding, the Institute offers entrepreneurs advisory services from a range of experts.  An initial review documents the entrepreneur's needs, and assigns experts to support the business.  Want some assistance?  Call +1.772.538.5400 or Info@FloridaAccelerator.com.
