Bethel is gearing up to launch a new initiative to support high growth potential businesses through its West Side Business Xcelerator. Funded in part by US Bank, this program is designed to provide more customized support than what businesses receive through the Entrepreneurship Training Program.

Each business owner will be partnered with a team of advisors have the potential to receive gap loans to help them get over a hurdle and qualify for larger traditionally funded loans.
