The one thing they all have in common is that they are microbusinesses with 0 - 9 employees.

Startup Program (Coming September 2021)

We've said it before, and we'll say it again. Success doesn't happen in a vacuum. 

We've been where you are and we know that the key to a successful startup is a strong community with connections to the people, information, and resources you need to start and grow your business.

We are so passionate about this, we've created a special program just for people starting a new business.

Our Startup program is geared towards business owners with 0 - 4 employees who are in their first 3 years of business. 

The focus of this program is to connect members with the resources they need to build a solid foundation for their new business. 

  • Business strategy & planning tools
  • Sales & Marketing help
  • Connections to other business owners, customers, & industry experts

With three membership levels for almost every budget, we believe the Startup program provides the right solution wherever you are in your startup journey. 

Growth Program (Coming January 2022)

The Growth program is designed to help businesses make the transition from startup to growth.

This program is for small business owners who are ready to take their business to the next level. 

Typical business owners have 0 - 9 employees and are ready to expand their business by offering new products, targeting new markets, or increasing production by hiring additional employees. 

These activities sound simple, but as Newton once said, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

  • Production & Distribution
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Recruiting & Retention Strategies
  • Employee Compensation & Benefits

The Growth program has a strong focus on strategy and planning, resiliency planning, and preparing business owners to step out of their comfort zone so they can implement measured change without getting overwhelmed.
