NCRC CDF Winter Growth Academy
February 3 , 10:00 am EDT – March 31 , 12:00 pm EDT
This program guides established small business owners through the steps needed to scale their business and gain access to capital. In addition to going through the Growth Academy eCourse, the cohort will meet with the instructor via Zoom for two hours of classroom time each week. This time will be used to brainstorm ideas, receive feedback, bring in guest experts, and build a community among the participants. The program covers all possible fundraising options from debt to equity and crowdfunding. Guest experts will be invited for Q&A sessions throughout the program.
Each week participants will complete one step of the growth process. The program will conclude with the creation and presentation of a pitch to an investor, bank, or strategic growth partner.
The NCRC CDFI Winter Growth Academy will take place every Friday between February 3, 2023 and March 31, 2023 at 10am PT / 1pm ET.
