3. Scale Your Business Accelerator
You’ve launched, you have revenue, and now it’s time to scale! Our most popular program, this is geared for companies that are ready to scale and accelerate their growth. This is an 8 to 12-week program for existing companies with $250K to $20M in annual revenue. The program includes weekly cohort meetings, weekly individual mentoring, 10-20 hours of weekly content to complete assignments, and includes show floor presence in the CWCBEducation Pavilion and conference registration fees at CWCBExpo.
All programs include these essential components:
1 on 1 Mentoring
Think of these as your office hours – a dedicated weekly hour to discuss a pressing business problem, content and concepts from the weekly module, or anything else that is on your mind. During Week 1, our staff will receive your schedules and accommodate accordingly. Meetings will be set to recur but can be changed with advanced notice. Your mentor might assign you deliverables and will likely follow-up on pending tasks. Mentors will submit notes on weekly meetings to keep a record of pending tasks, goals, and points to be addressed in following meetings. We suggest you keep records of discussions due to the high probability of dense information and insights being consistently presented or suggested. Mentors will include business advisors as well as industry subject matter experts.
Pitch Practice and Development
Fridays are set aside to allow participants time to craft and practice their pitch narratives and decks. These decks can be tailored for Investors or Strategic Partners. Each participant will be provided the opportunity to pitch in front of their peers and receive feedback from CWCBEducation staff, mentors, and other participants. Trust the process and the people around you — we’re here to help you develop. You’ll be amazed at how much your pitch will change on a weekly basis. Stay patient and focused! Companies will get the chance to deliver their pitches during demo day at the actual trade show in New York City and/or Boston.
Trade Show Presence and Registration
Included in the cost of each program is a shared presence on the Trade Show Floor along with two (2) registrations for the conference. Each conference will have a CWCBEducation area (usually a 30’ by 30’) where all companies that successfully complete their program will have the opportunity to have a table, pitch their product to attendees and hold meetings on the show floor. Each company will be designated specific slotted times by day to ensure that all companies have a presence and can spend the remaining time attending workshops and walking the floor. If you need additional registrations, please let us know.
As part of each CWCBExpo conference, a 90 min session will be scheduled to showcase the CWCBEducation program’s companies during our pitch demo day. Get ready for your close up and remember to bring plenty of business cards for networking!
Flitepath – Your Online Dashboard
You will be able to access learning content, meeting notes, your venture profile, and all other aspects of the program on Flitepath, a proprietary platform created to manage people, ventures, and program cohorts. Your account will be provisioned to be part of the CWCBEducation 2021 Cohorts, and your venture will be tagged to include your mentor and any other team members chosen (by you) to participate in the accelerator program. You can access Flitepath anywhere and at any time from your mobile device, phone or computer.
