Participants in the program will gain access to expertise in business strategy, marketing and finance which may not typically be available to businesses of this size. The cohort encourages business owners to build a network of peers and coaches that will help fuel their growth and create an ongoing support structure. Of those who have completed this program in the past, 80% see at least 50% revenue growth.
