This program is for you if you are a Core graduate who wishes to build a company that survives—and thrives.

It will help you focus on business growth that is an outcome of clear strategic vision, honing in on your business’s authentic voice, building a reliable team to lead your vision forward and nurturing a customer base that is as passionate about your business as you are.

Participants benefit from an intimate and challenging environment. A cohort of fellow classmates serves as a personal advisory board and accountability group driving each entrepreneur forward. The Advanced Core program is partially funded with a generous contribution from First Niagara Bank.
