To help us determine your business’s readiness for acceptance into our Business8 Accelerator we have developed a comprehensive Business8 Growth Readiness Assessment.
BUSINESS8 ACCELERATOR APPLICATION PROCESS
The goal of the assessment and follow-up call is to answer the following questions:
Is Your Business Eligible for GHOOD’s Business8 Accelerator?
The reason we offer high quality, low cost wraparound support to businesses is because we believe the best way to address our province’s current economic challenge is to build a strong and interdependent neighbourhood economy. Only businesses that actively care about the community they serve will be accepted into the accelerator.
Is Business8 the Right Support for You at this Stage of Your Business?
Based on your readiness for growth, we may or may not be the right fit for your business. The initial phone call is our chance to determine if we believe we have what it takes to help you strengthen and grow your business.
