If you are looking for a structured program that gives you resources and tools to build your business, then join us on March 20,2020
Emerging Leaders classes begin in May and end in October (exact dates TBD). Throughout the course of the program, you will write a three year strategic plan that is tailored to your business. And you will be introduced to a network of business experts that can help you as you implement your plan.
If you meet the criteria listed here, you could be one of 20 business owners selected.
You must have a minimum of $250,000 in annual sales but not more than $10 million.
You have been in business for at least three years. Your business has at least one employee in addition to you as the owner.
Your business is a for profit entity.
The person participating in the program must be the CEO, COO, CFO, Owner, or President and be a key decision maker.
You will agree to commit to a total of 100 hours of programming, including 40 hours of classroom training, seven CEO mentoring meetings, and course work assignments. Because Emerging Leaders is funded by the Small Business Administration, there is no charge to you. To learn more, please visit http://www.sba.gov/content/sba-emerging-200-initiative.
