Tuck Minority Programs:

Growing the Minority Business to Scale

Date: TBD

Cost: $4,900

How to be poised for growth?

The nature of outsourcing has changed. With major corporations consolidating their supply bases, scale is important.  But how will you do it? You could grow organically, adding customers and building up your capacity. You can create a strategic alliance. Or you might decide to merge with or buy another business. In Growing the Minority Business to Scale, you’ll assess these three essential options to determine which is right for you to grow your firm and take it to the next level of success.

During this five-day program, you will join a group of other successful minority business leaders in assessing your business strategy and exploring how your core competencies can be redirected to provide a growth trajectory. You’ll learn the foundations of innovation and how they apply to your company. And you will gain a better understanding of how to adjust your capital structure.

Achieve your business objectives in Growing the Minority Business to Scale.
