The Salt Lake Chamber and the Women’s Business Center of Utah are accepting final applications for its Diverse-Owned Business Accelerator this Monday, February 6th, 2023. The seven-week cohort program, sponsored by Bank of America, is designed for diverse small business owners to enhance skills, direction or strategy for their businesses.

  • Design and niche their business to be more competitive and outline a roadmap with milestones toward their business strategy.
  • Construct and utilize a brand style guide for consistency in brand and effective marketing.
  • Clarify their revenue streams and COGS/fixed expenses and identify their break-even point and then confidently adjust pricing and sales goals.
  • Systematize and automate processes and create a list of outsourcing options.
  • Establish a 90-Day action plan to make progress toward your business strategy.
