ScaleUp WNC 2018 Program

Cohort Program Dates

Each ScaleUp WNC cohort program includes a VIP KickOff event, eight class-based sessions, four ScaleMatters sessions-transformational leadership trainings, a capstone demo day event (optional), and a minimum of 5 hours of one-on-one technical assistance and mentoring to support the implementation of your strategic growth plan.

The tentative dates for the Cohort 7 sessions follow. ScaleUp WNC program participants are expected to attend all of the sessions for your cohort. Cohort 7 sessions will either be held in Boone, providing greater program accessibility to High Country area businesses, though not necessarily exclusive to businesses based in the High Country.
