Would you benefit from building a three-year strategic business plan? Does networking with other business owners in a supportive environment sound like it would be good for your company? Could you benefit from a free, six-month mini-MBA course? Will you be able to attend classes in Manhattan or Yonkers?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then SBA wants you to apply for its 2017, Manhattan/Yonkers Emerging Leaders Program. (Learn more by visiting the SBA Emerging Leaders website).
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Between $400,000 and $10 million in annual sales
- At least 3 years in business
- Employ at least one person in addition to the owner
- Participation in the program open to key decision makers in the company, such as CEOs, COOs, CFOs, Owners and Presidents
The course runs from mid-April to October. There will be two cohorts made-up of 17 participants: one cohort in Manhattan, the other in Yonkers. The program is sponsored by the SBA and is provided at no cost to participants. It requires 100 total hours, including 40 hours of classroom training (one weekday evening, every two weeks), seven (7) CEO mentoring meetings and requisite coursework.
