Growth and acceleration stage is an important phase of every start-up. The expectation of growth varies from anywhere between 75% to 100% growth Y-o-Y.  This phase involves growing your business exponentially.

The focus is on thorough learning program in which, we provide the experiences of growing their businesses through our mentor’s network. It also includes analysis of the issues and peer-to-peer interaction with the other organizations in the growth stage.

Classroom Learning

In addition to our VAP program, we also plan to have specific classroom sessions on how to improve operations, how to bring in efficiencies in the operations, how to better lead a team and company. These are conducted by entrepreneurs and leaders of organizations, who have done it before… Mainly we believe in “Been there and done that” concept for selection the faculty for the programs. The classroom learning has to be done for 3-4 key resources of the organization. The main topics covered during the training are similar to our VAP course.

Peer-to-Peer Forums

This is a forum for peer organizations and their leaders and founders discussing specific challenges they are facing, personally or professionally. Through questions and shared experiences, the entrepreneurs learn new strategies, and ways to address these specific challenges.  We also have case-studies after each classroom session, and also homework before the next topic, which develops a practice of being prepared and be the future leaders in their enterprises.

There are also forums specific to the leadership and growth strategies through our CEO’s network and expert’s network.
