Program description:

You’re leading a small business and business is good – congratulations! Now, how can you improve it and position it for growth? TVN’s Strategy & Growth Bootcamp is designed to help leaders acquire the tools necessary to address changes in business conditions, evolving economic factors, new opportunities, and challenges. The focus is on both strategy and growth because either one without the other is a source of chaos or stagnation in a business.

TVN’s Strategy & Growth Bootcamp is ideal for any Colorado-based company with a product or a service in-market (the business produces revenue). While there are a million areas where a leader can focus there are only some that will propel their business forward. Founders will learn how to step back to see the bigger picture and then zoom in with clarity to establish the best course of action. Additionally, we’ll explore how to create a daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly cadence for your company. On the growth side, founders will identify new and adjacent ideas for products/services to develop a roadmap. Concrete ideas will be introduced for growing existing customers and prospecting for new ones. Other tools presented include how to financially support your company’s growth, how to create inspirational but attainable and measurable goals, and how to build a learning culture. Finally, the Bootcamp features opportunities to meet and be inspired by successful founders who will share their unfiltered behind-the-scenes stories from their journey. 

Program design:

This is a two-week hybrid program for Colorado companies. The first week (March 13-17) will be fully remote and the second week (March 20-24) will be in-person in Telluride. Each day will include a 90-minute morning session (9:30am-11:00am MST) and 90 minutes of Q&A, discussion, or office hours in the afternoon session (1pm-2:30pm MST), leaving plenty of time to get other work done during the day.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis through February 28.

Company participation fee:

The TVN does not take equity. The fee is $1,500 per company. If needed, TVN can provide housing for 1 founder in Telluride during the second week of the program. Fee waivers will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Geographic prioritization:

The program is available to any Colorado company though priority will be given to companies based on the Western Slope.
