Accelerate Latinx

In our continued recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month, today’s Friday Focus highlights the Indy Chamber Conexion Hispanic Business Council’s Accelerate Latinx powered by Interise program, an in-depth business course designed specifically for Latinx business owners who are ready to take their businesses to the next level.

Accelerate Latinx provides a free 7-month business course that focuses on providing its participants with hands-on training to achieve accelerated growth and achievement in their businesses.

Participants of the course join a cohort of peers and participate in class sessions that cover the following topics: business development strategies, strategic planning, finance and financial management, marketing/sales, human resources, accessing capital, and government

contracts. Participants also receive peer-to-peer mentoring and take part in self-analysis case studies. By the end of the course, participants will have created a three-year strategic growth plan.

Accelerate Latinx is accepting applications for its next course which begins in October. Eligible candidates include business owners who identify as Hispanic, Latino, or Latina, earn between $250,000 - $5 million in revenue annually, employ at least one additional person and those who have been in business for at least two years.
