Accelerate your company’s growth!

November 2016 - Now’s the time to apply for ScaleUp, a program designed to accelerate companies to significant growth and expansion. Funded through a contract with the U.S. Small Business Administration, participation is completely FREE. 

ScaleUp is designed for companies in all industries that have been in operation two or more years, with revenues between $150,000 and $500,000 per year, and that are committed to doubling or tripling their revenues in the next few years. 

ScaleUp is a comprehensive business growth training program, offered in Lacey, which includes in-person classroom training and one-on-one consultation to help business owners plan and achieve their goals. At the end of the training you’ll have developed a customized growth plan for your business. This course is offered FREE of charge.  

Visit the ScaleUp website for further information about the program and view this 2-minute video for a taste of the experience.  The Center for Business & Innovation launched the ScaleUp training series in 2016 and the first 30 graduates are already seeing results. 

“I loved taking this class,” said Jason Phillips, owner of Zoe Juice Bar, a business that’s experienced significant expansion.  “I’ve gained lots of insightful information and tools, and the ability to connect with likeminded individuals in the region has been really valuable.”

The upcoming 14-week experience begins January 5, 2017 and runs through April 6, 2017. 

Class Days: Thursday mornings
Class Times: 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
