We are beginning to accept applications for the 2018 GROW Survive program. The 9-month course will begin in June and will provide invaluable tools, resources, and relationships to make your business GROW. Click here to apply.

The two things most new businesses need are MORE MONEY and MORE TIME.

The NAWBO Kentucky Survive Program helps you do both - by getting clear on your intentions, working your plan, and surrounding yourself with others in the same boat - trying to make it during their first few years of entrepreneurship.

This nine-month program is one of the best investments you can make for yourself and your business. The session starts June 2018.

Cost: $900 (annual pay and includes one year of NAWBO Introductory membership, valued at over $300). Payment plan options are available.

Contact Wendy Hall for more information. Or click here to apply.
