Whether it’s determining how you’re going to fill the rush of new orders, deciding how you’re going to penetrate new markets or figuring out how you’re going to make payroll, it seems at times you find yourself wishing you had an instruction manual for your business and we are here to help.”
The EO Accelerator program is currently operational in more than 50 cities worldwide. A maximum of 30 participants will be selected from northern Nevada to participate. Participants must be the owner or founder of an operating business with gross yearly revenues between $250,000 and $1,000,000.
