How the BizForge Program Works

BizStarts BizForge Program

Through the BizForge Program, you will receive a customized Action Plan to start or grow your company and BizStarts will guide you through each step. Ready to Begin BizStarts?

Step 1: Assess

In your first meeting, BizStarts leads you through a readiness assessment of your business using a strengths, weaknesses and opportunities model and develops with you an Action Plan and to identify resources or training needed to reach your goals. Want a head start? Take a self-assessment before your first meeting and discuss the results at BizStarts.

Step 2: Prepare

Your customized Action Plan may include a combination of one-on-one business coaching, attending BizStarts monthly educational workshops called Professional Programs, participating in the Mentor Program, and attending networking events. BizForge is much more than a one-size-fits-all program and your Action Plan is customized to fit your unique needs and stage of development.

Step 3: Grow

There has been much focus on the start-up of small businesses both locally and nationally. Despite the push to launch start-ups, however, failure rate continues to hold at 56% within the first four years. Unlike other entrepreneur training and support programs, BizStarts travels with you beyond the first day you open your business or launch a growth strategy to provide ongoing support for profitability and financial performance. You may also join the BizStarts Alumni Network, a powerful resource for maintaining the connections you form in the BizForge program.
