PROGRAM BENEFITS

Business owners join a supportive business community, offering peer-to-peer and one-on-one mentorship opportunities, as well as in-depth business and growth planning. Course topics cover marketing, finances, government procurement and certification. Throughout the course participants create their business plan for sustainability and growth, and leave with both a plan for the year ahead and life-long business connections.
After the program, alumni continue to receive one-on-one support, as well as invitations to Executive Series classes; additional in-depth learning opportunities on subjects covered in the ScaleUp course.

Who Can Apply?

Am I eligible? ScaleUp participants are focused on their business growth. They typically have been in business for more than two years, have at least two employees, have an annual revenue of $50,000 on average (in non-COVID times), and are working in their business full time. Occasionally we work with business owners who do not quite meet this profile exactly, but definitely are on a path to growth.
This cohort is for Bronzeville based business owners, or business owners who serve Bronzeville residents. Not sure if you fit all our criteria? Apply and we’ll figure it out together!

The cohort is only for businesses in Bronzeville of Chicago.
