ScaleUp: The COVID-19 Edition (space limited)

Business is not as usual right now and it may not be for a long time.
ScaleUp: The Covid Edition leverages the highly successful curriculum designed by the Thurston EDC to create a new program that is focused on operational strategies that will create resiliency and sustainability for your business in the face of a global pandemic.
The three-hour courses are held online on 10 consecutive Wednesdays, allowing up to 100 businesses around the state to improve their strategic thinking and decision-making, create operational efficiencies and strengthen the bottom line in times of uncertainty.
The program includes virtual classroom training, roundtables, best practices and access to mentors and other resources. A special “Study Hall” on Mondays provides opportunities for private mentoring and coaching.
The curriculum is based on the Thurston Center for Business Innovation’s highly respected ScaleUp program, which uses the Kauffman Foundation’s FastTrac Growth Venture coursework.
