The Council for Entrepreneurial Development (CED) has a proven track record in supporting companies at the most critical time. Outcomes are based on CED’s ability to deliver effective education while engaging a powerful network of experts to assist along the way. GRO, an incubator by CED, leverages a network of experts that have been cultivated over the years to help your venture take off. Cohort companies will attend weekly classes delivered by top-notch speakers, receive 1:1 coaching from industry leaders and entrepreneurs, and complete assignments to help launch their ventures.
Each cohort is capped at 15 companies in order to create an effective learning environment and promote cohesion among participants. The cohorts meet for two sessions each week. The first session delivers the content for a week in an interactive format by subject matter experts. The second session is a working session where content is applied to each venture in tandem with their matched coaches. Group share is prioritized weekly to promote healthy feedback and build on strengthening relationships within the cohort of companies. At the end of the program, each company will make a pitch to the community with their unique ask for support.
