MEET THE GRADUATES

"Since going through the South Valley Chamber’s KeyBank Business Accelerator Academy, I have implemented a systematic marketing plan. Before there wasn’t any marketing or advertising that the gym was doing, but we now have a program that we do on a monthly basis that includes blogging, email, and advertising. It’s helped us continue to grow." 
“Everyone has the same problems whether you’re in the outdoor business or the printing business or the engineering business – we all as small business owners have similar issues. I get stuck in the grind like many business owners and I’m worried about which fire I need to put out today. Being part of the South Valley Chamber’s KeyBank Business Accelerator Academy gets me outside of my business and helps me think about the future."
