What does growing your business and creating social impact have in common? The new Thrive Accelerator!!!
There are very few businesses in Calgary who are satisfied with their profitability. Not too many businesses are ok with where they are at right now. Part of it is the nature of being an entrepreneur, in that we also strive for more and to be better. Thrive Accelerator can help.
Social entrepreneurship or social businesses are quite popular right now, and Calgary is seeing a rise in the amount of businesses identifying themselves as a social business. That means, businesses that are looking to create social impact with their business. Thrive Accelerator can help.
The new Thrive Accelerator is here to help your business starting March 14th in Calgary. In this FREE 6 month program, you will attend classes once a week (Tuesdays from 6-8:30pm), as well as receive one-on-one weekly business coaching. We cover topics on strategic planning, financial management, marketing and sales, as well as defining your social impact and measuring success.
One of the highlights from the last Accelerator was the support participants got from each other. Each week there was time devoted for one participating business to share their successes and struggles, giving space for participants to provide each other feedback and suggestions on how they could grow their business.
So not only are you receiving classroom education from experts in the field, access to a business coach, but a peer network that will last beyond the program duration.
We accept business that have been in operation for at least one year and are operating in Calgary. You do not need to identify yourself as a social business, but be willing to incorporate a social impact goal into your business. Our Accelerator is perfect for the business that is making around $100-200,000 per year and wants to grow. You will be expected to do some work that is directly related to growing your business. Your business doesn’t grow by just learning, you have to do it.
