Innovate Springfield is accepting applications for the spring cohort of Co.Starters, a 10-week program that equips entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships and tools to turn ideas into action. The best candidate for Co.Starters is someone with a new idea for a business or an existing business looking to become more sustainable. Co.Starters provides an opportunity to fine-tune that idea and talk with others in a supportive, collaborative and welcoming environment.

Sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-8:30 p.m. beginning March 24. Past participants who have successfully transitioned to a brick-and-mortar location include Patrick Russell, owner of Reverie Apparel, and Gordon Davis, owner of Whimsy Tea Company.
