2gether International serves as a springboard for ideas from founders with disabilities and chronic illnesses
HAMPDEN COUNTY, MA, December 14, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — 2gether International, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting high-growth startups led by people with disabilities, celebrated the successful completion of its latest business accelerator program. The program, designed to equip disabled entrepreneurs with the resources and mentorship they need to thrive, culminated in a graduation ceremony showcasing the diverse and impactful ventures founded by its participants.
One of the graduating founders was Theresa Anoje, a 31-year-old Black woman and cane user who studied Government at Cornell University. She launched a newsletter platform called Remotely Good, connecting remote job seekers in the social sector with meaningful opportunities.
“I’ve always been passionate about making a social impact,” shared Theresa. “But finding remote work within the sector takes time and effort. That’s why I created my newsletter – to bridge the gap between passionate individuals and purpose-driven organizations seeking remote talent.”
Theresa’s story highlights the unique challenges faced by disabled individuals seeking to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. 2gether International’s accelerator program directly addresses these challenges by providing tailored support in areas like business development, funding, and networking.
“Disability and illness are not a barrier to success, but rather a source of strength and innovation,” stated Theresa Anoje, Managing Editor of the Remotely Good Newsletter. “The accelerator program is just one way to level the playing field for disabled entrepreneurs and unleash their full potential.”
The graduation ceremony was not just a celebration of individual achievements; it was a testament to the collective power of 2gether International’s mission. The diverse range of ventures showcased, from assistive technology solutions to sustainable fashion brands, painted a picture of a future where disability is not a limitation, but a catalyst for positive change.
