Mountain Bizworks calls for applications for 2017 ScaleUp WNC business cohorts

From Mountain Bizworks:

Take your business to the next level in 2017! Mountain BizWorks is now accepting applications for the 2017 ScaleUp WNC cohorts
Up to 30 high-potential small businesses from across WNC will be accepted; Deadline to apply is January 29

Starting a business is hard work. Scaling a business is equally hard, and often requires different strategy and skills than used in the startup phase. The ScaleUp WNC program works with existing entrepreneurs and small businesses owners from across WNC that have demonstrated initial success and have potential for significant growth.

Using a cohort based approach, with 15 businesses accepted into each group, ScaleUp WNC provides mentorship, management training, growth capital connections and other critical resources to help companies achieve sustained growth and contribute to the small business-led economic development of our WNC communities.

Mountain BizWorks is very pleased to announce the call for applications for the fifth and sixth ScaleUp WNC cohorts. Cohort 5 will begin in late February, and Cohort 6 will start in June. The deadline to apply is January 29. Visit for full program details and to apply.
