"This is my favorite part of being a business owner, giving back by helping another business grow to maturity."
Giving back to the community is a major part what I do with Accelerated Business Consulting. Every year one deserving company is chosen to participate in my mentorship program. In order to be chosen a business must meet the following criteria
The company has been in business for more than 3 years
The financial strength of the company is in an upward trend, with little or no debt
The company must have a minimum of 2 employees
Be located in Northern Colorado
The company receives 6 hours of in person consulting from myself over a 3 month period. The 6 hours are dedicated to train the team on why and how to create a business operations manual as well as how to develop a human capital needs analysis to create and support sustainable company growth. The goal of the mentoring program is to help these scale-up business develop and implement a scaling plan for their growing business. From experience I find that many businesses are ready to grow long before they actually implement growth. The 6 hours I provide really helps fast track the company and owner into more structured business operations. For many scale up businesses it is difficult to gain capital backing due to the lack of confidence investors feel from the business. Having a solid business operations manual as well as a written plan for future growth provides potential investors with the confidence they need to help these budding companies grow.
