Founded by enterprising Yale undergraduates in 2001, Elmseed has become a valuable resource for over 500 New Haven businesses.
Elmseed is staffed entirely by Yale undergraduates dedicated to New Haven small businesses. We provide motivated entrepreneurs with access to one-on-one personalized consulting, business training, technical assistance, and a network of peer support. In doing so, Elmseed aims to empower entrepreneurs who lack the resources necessary to start or expand small businesses. Elmseed is committed to encouraging and enabling sustainable economic self-reliance in the greater New Haven area.
