Our KeyBank Business Accelerator Academy is in full swing and we’d like to introduce you to cohort two. We have businesses ranging from HR services to axe throwing to health and wellness. There’s a whole gamut of people and we’re excited for you to get to know them. Follow along here for spotlights and updates on what we learn.

Not Sure What the KeyBank Business Accelerator Academy Is?
Gosh darn it, we’re glad you asked. The Sandy Chamber’s KeyBank Business Accelerator Academy is basically a 13-week mini-MBA course. We use a curriculum provided by Interise, combine it with a dynamic instructor, gather the masses, and voilà. It’s focused on helping business owners build a strategic three-year growth plan. It also dives into marketing, sales, financials, business analysis, and elevator pitches. The curriculum has been tested for over a decade, and results show a 70% increase in profits for each company to go through the program. Pretty cool, right?

You will also have the opportunity in class to network with other small business owners. Each individual in the class has likely faced a problem you are facing right now. With a cohort of 20…you will gain 20 new business advisers that are in the same boat.

If you have an existing business, this program is for you. This program isn’t for you if you only want to grow by a little bit. This program is for the dreamers – those who want to increase profits by 50% or 100%. Yes, looking at you.
