Opportunity Zone Capital Accelerator Program

The Opportunity Zone Capital Accelerator Program provides free consulting services for businesses seeking opportunity zone investment. Businesses selected for the program worked with a consultant who guided them through the process of honing their pro forma, capital campaign, and pitch deck.

The goals for the program are to:

  • help the selected businesses secure opportunity zone investment
  • provide an example that other business owners and investors can follow

In September 2021, we partnered with gener8tor to open up applications for a third cohort of businesses. Each program is capped at five teams, and requires no fees and no equity. Participating companies will receive:

  • individualized coaching and mentorship from the gBETA team during weekly, one-on-one meetings
  • one-on-one meetings with over 25 mentors including serial entrepreneurs, subject matter experts and investors
  • a weekly Lunch and Learn series featuring topics relevant to startups including understanding market size, choosing a revenue model, and how to pitch investors
  • access to a exclusive pitch night reception during which participating companies have the opportunity to pitch to an audience of entrepreneurs, mentors, investors and community members
  • opportunity to build relationships within each cohort of five companies, and the community of gener8tor and gBETA alumni
  • Over $1 million in deals and perks from vendors like IBM Cloud, Rackspace, Amazon, PayPal, Zendesk, and Microsoft

 Applications for this program are open. Learn more and apply through the gBETA website.
