SIDE NOTE:&nbsp;I wanted&nbsp;to let you know about a fantastic opportunity held this summer in Columbus! SEA Change is a&nbsp;14-week program that takes entrepreneurs interested in making a measurable social change and helps them move forward further, faster. The proven curriculum includes basic business knowledge and relies on a “reverse classroom model” to encourage entrepreneurs to&nbsp;self teach&nbsp;then reinforce their online learning with in-person support. The accelerator culminates in a pitch event where the top entrepreneurs are awarded cash and prizes to help them with their next steps.</p>
The application window will open on March 17, but in the&nbsp;meantime&nbsp;SEA Change is looking for:</p>
