Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks has announced that applications are being accepted for the 10th class of The Entrepreneurs Network, which she founded in 2006.
TEN is designed to bolster economic growth by supporting scalable, high-revenue potential firms by providing upstate firms with access to national experts and funding resources, offering practical, hands-on programs that train, educate and foster connections for new ventures.
TEN is an intense four-month program, based on best practices of leading entrepreneurship centers, focused on promoting job growth and business creation. Only 20 participants will be accepted to allow for maximum interaction with TEN’s entrepreneurial experts.
The deadline to apply is Oct. 29. The fee is $350 per person, due upon formal acceptance into TEN. Applications are available online at www.ten-ny.org.
Candidates for TEN must be founders, senior executives, CEOs or those holding a controlling position in an early stage technology, life science and/or scalable, high-revenue potential company. They should be in business fewer than 10 years, with revenues less than $10 million, and should have business operations primarily in upstate New York. Established companies involved in ownership transition, and spin-offs from university research departments and large employers are also eligible.
The upcoming schedule for TEN runs from November through February and includes Boston-based Derby Management boot camps on entrepreneurship and sales effectiveness.
