Main & Digital will bring together 15 mainstreet business owners for a series of 4 bootcamps that will provide entrepreneurs with customized support in exploring the e-commerce field.

All applicants will be asked to give a short presentation about their business and how they hope to use e-commerce to increase their sales. From these presentations, 15 businesses will be chosen to participate in 4 day-long bootcamps (every Friday in March), at the end of which they will once again pitch their e-commerce plan. 5 of the Main & Digital graduates will receive a prize of approx.. $4950 to put specifically towards e-commerce costs and resouces.

Each participant will be required to provide a $250 commitment deposit that will be refunded to them upon completion of the program.
