NextFab’s Artisan Accelerator program is an 8-week experience that gives artisans and entrepreneurs the essential tools, support, and structure to focus on the things that matter to build viable businesses. Unlike other accelerator programs, the Artisan Accelerator is designed specifically to help artisan entrepreneurs craft profitable business models, reach new customers, and build sustainable companies. Two accelerator cohorts will be held each year, one in the spring and one in the fall, and six to eight applicants will be selected for each cohort.
Ideal candidates are individuals selling custom, handmade, and unique goods. To be eligible, applicants must be generating between $100 and $5,000 in sales per month. The application window opens on Monday, January 3, 2022, and closes on Wednesday, February 23, 2022.
