Community Foundation, CWC offer money for Start Up Intensive

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole and Central Wyoming College are offering a $2,000 scholarship to one local nonprofit to take the Spring 2019 Start Up Intensive program. The Start Up Intensive is an in-depth entrepreneurial training program designed to provide participants with proven tools, frameworks and skills that winning companies utilize to launch successful business ideas.

Developing and maintaining clarity around mission, priorities, fundraising, multiple stakeholders and budget can be a significant challenge for nonprofits, especially those with small staffs. Through the SUI program, executive directors will learn to think about their mission from a business perspective and put strong foundational building blocks in place while they build their leadership and organizational skills and wisdom to make even greater lasting positive impact.

The Community Foundation and Central Wyoming College support this deep learning and strong community impact with this scholarship.

The course runs from April 9 through June 13, 2109. Between 12-14 participants will dedicate three full days per week to class time in addition to working through their ideas after class hours.

All exercises are focused directly on the underlying business/nonprofit. The class ends with participants presenting their businesses to a panel of experienced advisors. Once the class time program concludes, participants have 10 hours of follow up consulting time with a panel of experts to use as they move forward.

Sandy Schultz Hessler teaches the program. She brings a wealth of business and teaching experience to the front of the classroom. Hessler has taught at Harvard, Tufts University, and U. Miami Ohio, and has been a successful entrepreneur, nonprofit and marketing professional.

Enrollment is limited. Applications are welcome and encouraged from any location. Workforce Training Grants and additional financial assistance may be available to those who qualify.

Visit the website for more details and to apply. Applications are due March 1 and will be considered on a rolling basis if the class does not fill at that time. Call Liza Millet for additional information at 917-864-9395 or email.
