What is the Facilitator Summit?

SEED SPOT's Facilitator Summit is an exclusive, invite-only national gathering of community leaders empowering local entrepreneurs.

Attendees of the Facilitator Summit will leave as certified trainers for SEED SPOT's 2-Day Launch Camp. The 2-Day Launch Camp is an impactful 48-hour program that guides early-stage entrepreneurs through exploration of their business ideas, market analysis, customer discovery, creating a prototype, and pitching to a live community audience.

SEED SPOT is ranked a Top 20 Accelerator in the World by Gust and Fundacity and a Top 3 Social Impact Incubator in the U.S. by UBI Global. SEED SPOT received an Emmy Award for our partnership with Univision serving Latino entrepreneurs from the Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Science (NATAS).

There is a lot of entrepreneurial spirit in our community, and we wanted to support that while also encouraging the social and environmental aspect of entrepreneurship. SEED SPOT's values closely align with ours, and their curriculum gave us the opportunity to teach, promote, and support our community.
