MEET THE GRADUATES

"Since the program, I have worked on two city contracts and two projects with one of the general contractors that supported the program. In a year’s time of starting the program, I have doubled my revenue and number of employees.” 
“The program was instrumental in helping me to focus on the financial inner workings of my business. In addition, having a written growth plan provided a road map for us to track progress toward our stated goals, make adjustments as necessary, and stay on course. Another added bonus was the interaction with other business owners which enhanced the entire experience.”
