More Information

The Marketing Accelerator Program will start with a one-hour kickoff event for ten businesses on March 28 at 12:00PM.  This in-person session will get you thinking about your marketing efforts, set the stage for the work to come, and introduce key marketing concepts.

In the second phase of the program, businesses will work one-on-one with the marketing agency, who will perform a marketing audit of each business and develop strategies and recommendations to help attain business goals. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in quarterly 1-hour follow-up meetings with the agency.

NOTE: All seats are filled for the first cohort within the Accelerator program. Applications are now being accepted for the second cohort, which will kick off in July 2024.
