Scale Up Milwaukee, an initiative of the Greater Milwaukee Committee supported by WEDC, will again offer its selective growth training program, the Scalerator. In its fourth year, the program will continue focusing on three main areas of content: sales and marketing, finance and operations and management. To date, the Scalerator program has helped 45 participating companies from around southeastern Wisconsin experience significant growth with more than 150 new hires and 42% projected annual revenue growth.
The six-month, seven-session training program teaches business owners the practical skills to inject growth into their ventures. Administered by a team of professors from world leader in entrepreneurship education Babson College, the Scalerator works with investors, banks, professional services firms, universities and public sector stakeholders to support growth.
