eforever

We support small business owners as they navigate the ups and downs of entrepreneurial life. Because of our strategic partnership with EforAll, our first Peer-to-Peer group is currently up and running on the SouthCoast, with limited space in our second group. Want to learn more? Connect with Will Rubenstein, our Community Director!

About

Eforever provides entrepreneurs living and/or working in underserved or marginalized communities with a facilitator-led, peer-to-peer model of group involvement and learning. We believe that nurturing strong, independent businesses in the heart of our communities is the way to establish generational wealth, stability, and local success.  Our first group is running now, and our second is nearly full, with plans underway for a third. Thanks to our strategic partnership with EforAll, we are positioned together to make an impact across the SouthCoast.
