Redeemer Ei Business Plan Competition


The Entrepreneurship Initiative (Ei) was was launched in 2006 to encourage and support entrepreneurs within our congregation who have a bold vision to start a new arts, for-profit, or not-for-profit venture that foster shalom and brings about gospel-centered renewal to New York City and beyond. To encourage entrepreneurship, we sponsor a Business Plan Competition! It attracts new and talented entrepreneurs and helps equip them in the early stages of their launch.
