Slingshot SV and ChangeBound.org Forge Partnership to Create The First Coworking Spaces for Young Entrepreneurs
Slingshot SV and ChangeBound.org announced a partnership recently that teams the young entrepreneur coworking space, ChangeBound, with the business incubation and business acceleration tools and mentors of Slingshot SV.
ChangeBound is the first coworking space for young entrepreneurs to work and be surrounded by like-minded change makers. They have realized young people with passion can change the world for the better and are creating positive environments in which people can work while feeling inspired and equipped with the knowledge and tools to successfully take action. ChangeBound is focused on generating an ethical atmosphere of good people in order to create the most effective and progressive situation possible.
Slingshot SV is partnering with ChangeBound to give these young entrepreneurs access to the tools, resources, guidance, and mentorship to develop a successful business model. The partnership aims to influence and motivate the youth allowing them access to the following:
- Slingshot SV’s Unique Educational Portal for businesses
- Critical Resources for small businesses when they need them
- Vetted People Resources for advice and mentorship
- Community of People to share ideas, talent, and best practices
The collaboration will be built based on the distinct strengths of each company: Slingshot SV’s incubator capabilities, with the power of the youthful ChangeBound community and space.
“We partner with organizations that build community and teach entrepreneurs how to turn ideas into thriving businesses. If you are launching a startup or business and only have a few people, you should really look at getting into a coworking space. It can be very cost effective, but more importantly, you’ll gain knowledge thought sharing space with other innovators.” said Andrew Van Valer.
Slingshots SV is on a mission to change the outcome of start-ups for the better and are passionate about supporting our youth. Who better to help our youth then other entrepreneurs that have had success?
“We are excited to provide the incubator and accelerator tools, resources and mentorship of Slingshot SV within our ChangeBound coworking spaces. It will give our members the support and motivation they need to follow their passions and take action.” said Paige McQuillan
