Small businesses desiring stronger profitability in 2019 can benefit from ScaleUp, a comprehensive small business growth training program offered through the EDC Center for Business & Innovation. The winter program begins January 17 and is designed for business owners who have little time to focus on growth. ScaleUp provides powerful tips, tools and insights that build efficiency, strategy and capacity.
ScaleUp includes in-person classroom training, peer engagement, and optional no-cost one-on-one advising to help business owners plan and achieve their goals. This program is designed for businesses in any industry that have been in operation at least a year. Businesses within Olympia, Lacey and Tumwater are eligible for substantial scholarships thanks to generous funding from those cities.
Business owners who have participated in ScaleUp Training Series have seen transformational impacts on their businesses. Some of their comments about the experience include:
- “Every business owner should take this class!”
- “This class was exceptional. You won’t regret it!”
- “ScaleUp has helped build my confidence to strive for more in my business.”
- “I learned how to organize my business and got a better understanding of the numbers necessary to succeed.”
ScaleUp includes three, 4 session courses: Business TuneUp, Build Your Market, and Financial Mastery. While designed for businesses to take in succession, each class can be taken as a stand-alone.
The Center for Business & Innovation has offered ScaleUp since 2016. Universally, past participants have found the program well-worth their investment of time, and for those who weren’t eligible for outside funding, their investment of money.
The ScaleUp Series begins on January 17 with the Business TuneUp course.
