First Stage

Am I a First Stage Business Owner?

First Stage business owners have been in business for over one year, and have 3-9 employees and typically $500k or more in revenue.  They are focusing on moving from the start-up stage to more managed growth.


The benefits of participating in a Sounding Board group for First Stage Businesses include:

  • Accountability to make forward business progress
  • Support and experience sharing from similar stage business owners
  • Guest speakers on topics of interest as selected from your peer group
  • Coaching services available to keep you on task between meetings
  • Specialized support services available to help your business find new ways to grow
  • Full confidentiality among all members to allow everyone to speak freely about real issues facing your business

What is involved?

  • Ten 3-hour meetings per year
  • Groups of 10-15 non-competing business owners
  • A commitment to the success of your business and of the businesses in your group
  •  A willingness to share your business experiences (successes and failures) to help your peer group members address their own issues
  • Additional coaching services at your discretion
