Small Business Digital Accelerator Program

August 18, 2022

FreeMore Information / Register

The Small Business Digital Accelerator Program supports small businesses and entrepreneurs across WA state who are interested in becoming online sellers or looking to optimize their online selling. Throughout the program, Amazon’s selling platform will be the case study that entrepreneurs can look to expand their footprint.

Use of the Amazon platform is not required to participate in the program. Businesses who have an established product, based in Washington State, and are ready to engage with the material and live session will get the most out of this training.

Program Highlights

  • Class format will include 3-4 hours of on-demand videos, readings, and handouts. Participants can watch and review at their own pace.
  • In addition this course will include weekly 1.5-hour live sessions. The live session will be held virtually and recap the week’s materials, include facilitated discussions, and provide opportunities for students to meet each other through breakout sessions.
