Objective: To afford small business owners who meet all EO membership criteria but operate companies between $250,000 and $1M in revenue an opportunity to participate in a program with 3 distinct segments:
The program will begin with 12 biweekly classes taught by Michael Burcham, President and CEO of the Entrepreneur Center. Each class will take place at the center, and EO members will be invited to attend and participate. The first 1 1/2 hours will include classroom instruction by Michael, and for the next hour, the group will be divided into small group discussion to discuss how to apply the learnings to Catalyst businesses. We’ll begin the program in August, and intend to only have one Catalyst class of 25 participants this fiscal year. At the ocnclusion of the classes, EO members will join you for a cocktail party to celebrate the completion of your classes.
The Catalyst participants will be divided into forums for a period of one year after the conclusion of the classroom segment. The 25 Catalyst members will then be divided into 4 different forums that will meet for 12 months. Each forum will have EO members assigned to lead the forum for at least the first 6 months.
We will also provide an EO Member as a mentor to meet quarterly with each Catalyst member. There will be specific guidelines and expectations for these quarterly meetings, and the mentors will be assigned prior to the conclusion of the classroom portion.
Additional EO Events:
Catalyst members will be invited to many official EO learning and social events throughout the 18 months of Catalyst participation.
