SBA Launches T.H.R.I.V.E, Executive Level Business Training Program

Registration open now through May 31st, 2022, for cohorts in Seattle and Spokane

SBA’s T.H.R.I.V.E (Train, Hope, Rise, Innovate, Venture, Elevate) is an executive-level training series designed to accelerate the growth of high-potential small businesses across the United States. Formerly known as Emerging Leaders, T.H.R.I.V.E Emerging Leaders Reimagined is a six-month, intensive training series including in-person coaching, self-paced instruction, mentoring, and classroom time. The program allows participants to work with a network of experienced subject matter experts in core business topics like accounting, business strategy, marketing, and human resources customized for the unique needs of small business owners.
T.H.R.I.V.E.’s reimagined design removes the one-size-fits-all model in exchange for engagement, problem-solving, and peer-to-peer interaction within the cohorts. In addition, the new format promotes an ecosystem of business connections among business peers, government leaders, and the financial community.
