start your own business
If you live in South Eleuthera and would like to become self-employed or start a business, and need help creating and refining your business plan, or a loan/grant application, you have come to the right place!
The process starts with you filling out an application form here.
One of our advisors will then review your application and get in touch with you by email.
Once you receive that email, you will get a link to our elearning platform to start the course. You will have 3 weeks to complete your course and to fill out a workbook.
We will then use your workbook from the course to create your business plan.
Once your plan is finished you are eligible to pitch your business idea to our 'Shark Tank’.
The top five from every Shark Tank will move forward with business plans and business licenses and qualify for a small OEF grant.
The Remaining Finalists will be selected for mentoring and to build a pitch deck and business idea for the 2nd installment of the OEFSEA Shark Tank.
Our philosophy is to positively impact the people we work with. We will help you build and refine your business plan, investor/grant pitch, grant application and help prioritise your activities.
