WomenVenture's new Scale Up! Twin Cities program provides critical resources and support to women-owned mid-sized companies that have an established track record and are ready for exponential growth.

Funded by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), Scale Up! Twin Cities was created to level the playing field for women entrepreneurs—particularly for businesses owned by women of color and women in traditionally male-dominated fields.

Businesses selected for the program will receive an array of resources (valued at $8,000 per participant) to help them accelerate their business growth. This includes the following, all at no cost to participants:

  • 25 sessions over 31 weeks (74 hours of group training and 14 hours of individual training)

  • Trainings, including Kauffman FastTrac® GrowthVenture™, a 30-hour course that helps business owners evaluate and implement key strategies to transform and improve their business performance, and FastTrac® Listening to Your Business™ workshop, designed to help business owners establish a three-year vision for their company.

  • Profit Mastery financial management tools, which teach business owners to understand and monitor their balance sheets, identify causes of financial distress and integrate solutions to cure them, and increase profitability.

  • Personalized one-on-one coaching sessions with experienced business consultants.

  • Access to capital for business expansion.
