Growing an Established Diverse Business

Grow your Business to the Next Level

Growing an Established Diverse Business enables participants in established businesses to accelerate their growth.

This follow-up program to Building a Successful Diverse Business helps participants overcome the challenges that business owners often see after several years of successful growth and assess alternatives to organic growth—including strategic alliances and acquisitions.

This week-long program on campus at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth gives business owners and their key executives the vital frameworks and skills they need to expand their scale and scope. It is an ideal program for any business owner at a crucial crossroads in their business journey, just seeking to take a successful business to the next level, or contemplating an exit strategy.

Growing an Established Diverse Business focuses on a range of topics related to the successful design and implementation of growth strategies. Sessions devoted to financial skills, including business valuation and alternative sources of capital, deliver the insights needed to develop strong financial footing for growth.

The program is designed for experienced owners and key decision-makers who face a crossroads in the business journey or are just committed to taking their business to the next level. We welcome MBEs, WBEs, DoBEs, and other underrepresented entrepreneurs who have at least five years of ownership experience and annual revenue of $500,000 or more, and who have already attended Building a Successful Diverse Business. If you are interested in attending Growing an Established Diverse Business but have not attended the prerequisite program, we do offer exemptions for entrepreneurs who can demonstrate that they have comparable experience and education. If you have questions about which program is right for you, please contact us.

This program is offered once annually, and is open to diverse professionals from all industries.
