Has your pandemic pivot revealed an opportunity to grow? Looking to make changes that maximize the recovery economy? Did time out of the studio let you rethink your goals? You took that first leap to build a creative business, but what’s your next leap?
Bridgeway Capital’s Creative Business Accelerator and Ascender combined their business building capabilities to offer the inaugural Next Leap Program. Ten creative businesses were selected for a six-week intensive course to transform a growth idea into an actionable plan that is ready to realize. The program is virtual and flexible so participants were able to stay safe and do the work when it worked best.
Ascender’s team of experts and coaches worked closely with participants to forge that interesting growth idea into a strategy with sound financial and operational dimensions. The CBA will support participants through the program and help them make solid progress with their Next Leap goals over the following six months.
Participants that completed this intensive program were awarded $500 to start pursuing their Next Leap goals. The creative business with the most compelling Next Leap plan and pitch was awarded $5000 to boost their momentum.
