Fairfax County Supports New Program and Encourages County Businesses to Apply

 

Halcyon, a Georgetown-based business incubator, is offering start-up or new entrepreneurial businesses based in the DMV (DC-Maryland-Virginia) a chance to join its new Opportunity Intensive incubator program. Fairfax County is a strong supporter of this project as a means to grow and expand its start-up entrepreneurial business base and encourages all eligible county businesses to apply. Applications are open through February 11th, 2021.  (This is an update - deadline extended one week.)

The Opportunity Intensive is a 10-month program designed to equip early-stage entrepreneurs with the support they need to transform their ideas into scalable and sustainable ventures. To be eligible to join the cohort, ventures must have a for-profit component, be located in or primarily serve an opportunity zone, and demonstrate social impact. Applications for the 2021 Opportunity Intensive Fellowship are due on February 4th at 5pm EST.
 
Halcyon provides social entrepreneurs and changemakers critical support to grow and scale their ventures through pro-bono legal support, a $5,000 stipend, mentoring, leadership coaching, and access to potential investors. Halcyon takes 0% equity for participating in the program.  More information about the program benefits, eligibility, and selection criteria can be found on their website
