Business Incubation and Acceleration Program
The Business Incubation and Acceleration Program (BIAP) is an innovative strategy for increasing access to healthy, affordable, locally produced food in food deserts located in the Brightwood Development Corporation service area, while achieving sustainable business and employment opportunities for low-income individuals. The BIAP project is based on a Business Development and Assistance Model that will be applied to assist healthy food enterprises to start or expand their healthy food businesses through either incubation or acceleration activities. The three components of the project are: the Community Kitchen, the One Stop Shop Business Development and Assistance Center that will provide participants counseling, hands-on coaching and technical assistance, and a revolving loan fund. Additional services such as food technology, product development assistance, distribution and warehouse space will be available for the participants.
