Business Mentorship Opportunities: About the NYPACE Accelerator Program
NYPACE is a cohort-style accelerator program designed to support the growth-ready entrepreneur. Through the program, entrepreneurs can expect to connect with impact-driven advisors hailing from top firms. Importantly, advisors will provide entrepreneurs with access to like-minded business owners from whom they can glean much-needed resources and implementable solutions. Entrepreneurs and their advisor teams will meet regularly. During meetings, they will candidly discuss courses of action needed to take their businesses to the next level.

- operating officially for at least 2-3 years
- product/service offered is beneficial to an underrepresented/underserved demographic
- availability to meet with the assigned advisor team
