Over 7,000 small business owners have participated nationwide and in the U.K., and the program continues to expand. With a 99% graduation rate, business owner participants are translating the knowledge they gain from the program into increased revenue and job growth — within just six months of graduating, 69% of participants have increased their revenues, and 48% have created new jobs.
The 12-week educational curriculum, developed by Babson College, focuses on practical skills that can immediately be applied by business owners — including accounting, negotiating, marketing, human resources management, and much more. Business owners also receive one-on-one mentoring from a dedicated business advisor, and develop a growth plan specific to their business.
Eligible applicants must be the business owner, have at least 2 employees (can include the owner), have been in operation at least 2 years, made at least $100,000 in gross revenue in the most recent fiscal year, and must be located in Rhode Island.
