WHY SCALE UP? WHY NOW?
ScaleUp is a vital resource for entrepreneurs looking to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. Each week the class dives into a different side of the business, giving owners the opportunity to review, learn and push themselves to encourage sustainability and growth.
Marketing: Your Brand, Mission and the 30 Second Pitch
Management: Build a Winning Team
Finances: Financial Statements, Breakeven, Pricing & KPIs
Certification: Selecting the Right Certification & Contract Opportunities
Business owners receive one-on-one mentoring and assistance with business sustainability and growth planning, marketing, finances, government procurement and certification. During the course and outside of class, quarterly networking opportunities take place with participants, other cohorts and former alumni. 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.
