The Conductor, a Conway-based entrepreneurship organization, is launching its sixth cohort for its 10x Growth Accelerator. The program, in partnership with the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, offers a peer-driven entrepreneurship education curriculum, leadership coaching, and access to capital.
Since beginning in 2018, 68 Arkansas-based businesses have graduated from the program.
This 14-week program will consist of required meetings, once a week, for up to three hours in Conway. Growth-oriented firms with average annual revenues between $100,000 and $10,000,000 can apply and must commit to having at least one C-level executive available, engaged, and attending accelerator meetings.
“The 10x Growth Accelerator was created in 2018 to help companies 10x their business, and after five successful cohorts, the impact is evident across our state with many new jobs and increased revenues. Success stories continue to be shared, including one that happened within the last two months,” said Glenn Crockett, 10X Growth Accelerator Director. “One of our latest cohort members just signed a distributor in Australia to expand their international footprint. This program can truly make a positive impact on your business.”
Applications are now open for the program and approximately 20 companies will be selected. Starting in August, participants will receive targeted training by subject matter experts and receive peer-to-peer coaching and mentoring through a series of leadership roundtables.
“We’re constantly evolving our 10x curriculum and activities based on the needs and feedback of our participants. That means that participants in our upcoming cohort will reap the benefits of four years of refinement,” said Jeff Standridge, Managing Director of The Conductor.
Applications are due July 11, 2022. For more information, visit this website.
The Conductor is a public-private partnership with the University of Central Arkansas and Startup Junkie.
