Bristol Community College is partnering with the New Bedford Economic Development Council (NBEDC) to offer Technical Assistance through the NB100! program.

NB100! is a new program offered by the NBEDC to promote entrepreneurship, grow local wealth, and strengthen community bonds. Through this program, entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to apply to the NBEDC for a $10,000 kick-starter grant after completing technical assistance programming offered by one of its partners.

As a NB100! partner, Bristol Community College designed short-term trainings specifically focused on entrepreneurship and the skills needed to build sound business practices and develop basic operating principles.

Bristol acknowledges the energy and enthusiasm of entrepreneurs and created trainings to build a solid foundation as individuals navigate the many aspects of starting and operating a business - and potentially hiring a team.
