MNC Accelerate!

What is it ?

The MNC accelerator programme is the new initiative to support Mumpreneurs in the next phase of their business growth.  Its primary purpose is to nurture success and is specifically designed for MNC members who are proactively committed to growing their business and want to improve their business management skills.  It’s not training for start-ups, it’s an accelerator programme for those who want to be brave and scale up! 

The yearlong, 11 session programme facilitates growth in a number of ways by providing:-

  1. Training to build skills and confidence – training sessions will cover the key business areas essential for sustainable growth. Enabling delegates to know what good look likes, instil best practice and to learn practical tools & techniques that change business behaviours and provide forward momentum.
  2. Mentoring for all delegates throughout the year by the programme facilitator Caroline Newton from Number78, experts in strategy, business growth & facilitation.
  3. Peer to peer learning through a supportive and structured environment with likeminded entrepreneurs at the same stage in business. The programme includes action learning sessions which allow delegates to determine the topics they want to discuss within the group.  This enables the sessions to actively tackle the issues most pressing to the group and delegates can share, help and support one another through their own experiences.
  4. Accountability – your peers and facilitator will act like an objective Board of Directors that you are accountable to. You will also have a business buddy within the group who will keep you honest!  This is the time to try new & commit to new initiatives, safe in the knowledge that you’ll be supported through them and be expected to feedback your progress.
