Cohort 4 kicks off on June 10th as our largest ScaleUp WNC group yet, with 16 businesses participating—all of which have strong potential for growth and job creation. Already, the companies in this new cohort provide more than 100 jobs, collectively, across five WNC counties! Half of the selected businesses are woman-owned. The initiative, made possible with funding from the U.S. Small Business Administration, will provide these entrepreneurs with intensive growth strategy development, mentorship, access-to-capital support, and a rich network of peer business owners.
