ScaleUp WNC 2021 Spring Program

Mountain BizWorks and our partners are excited to support the tenth ScaleUp WNC cohort.

Please note that due to the uncertain nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 10th ScaleUp Cohort program will be a blended learning experience of virtual sessions and some socially distanced in-person events.

Cohort Program Dates

The 10th ScaleUp Cohort program will include a kick-off event, twelve class-based sessions, a capstone showcase event (optional), and a minimum of 10 hours of one-on-one technical assistance and mentoring to support the implementation of your strategic growth plan.

The program is open to applicants from anywhere across WNC. The tentative dates for Cohort 10 follow. Most sessions will be be held via Zoom, while some events and sessions will be held in-person. ScaleUp program participants are expected to attend all of the sessions for your cohort.
