SoCo Nexus, the Rohnert Park business incubator, plans early next year to offer a four-month education program for entrepreneurs.

Applications for the SoCo Nexus Accelerator program will be accepted starting in September. The program, which will cost about $1,200, is slated to begin in February.

The program will provide local entrepreneurs with “the training, mentoring and access to capital they need to grow,” Accelerator Director Lisa Tamayo said in a statement.

Tamayo, the SoCo Nexus board chairwoman, previously served as executive director of the Venture Greenhouse 2.0, which had offered a similar education program in San Rafael.

Located in Sonoma Mountain Village, the nonprofit SoCo Nexus is currently focused on four business sectors: sustainable resources, medical technology, cloud-based technology and manufacturing. However, all entrepreneurs are welcome to apply.
