Applications are now being accepted for the 17th class of The Entrepreneurs Network, which was founded by Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks in 2006 and is an initiative designed to bolster economic growth by supporting scalable firms in upstate New York with high-revenue potential.
TEN, as the program is known, is a program series for new ventures and small business owners and executives, and is taught by local and visiting experts. Intensive entrepreneurial “boot camps” cover business strategy, marketing, sales, raising capital, attracting grants, finance and leadership to enhance the executive skills needed to implement an effective growth strategy.
Only 15 participants will be accepted. Admission is by application only, available at www.ten-ny.org/membership-form. Upon formal acceptance, applicants pay an all-inclusive $350 fee.
The class meets monthly at High Tech Rochester in Henrietta and other venues in the Rochester area for full-day sessions. Application deadline is Sept. 5; boot camp sessions begin Sept. 18 and end in December.
A complete schedule is available at www.ten-ny.org.
