ENOVATE Northern Virginia Growing America through Entrepreneurship (NOVAGATE)

Project ENOVATE-Employing Northern Virginia Through Entrepreneurship is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Laborís Workforce Innovations Fund to support collaborative entrepreneurial efforts and operates under the Virginia Employment through Entrepreneurship Consortium grant (VETEC). This is a 37-month collaborative effort serving WIA eligible adults. Project ENOVATE provides participants with information, classroom training, one-on-one technical assistance and counseling so they can establish and sustain new businesses. The uniqueness of Project ENOVATE is to provide each participant an opportunity to pursue his or her individualized business development strategy. The project uses a creative partnership of government and nonprofit agencies sharing assets and resources to provide a continuum of services to potential entrepreneurs.
