The Entrepreneurial Journey
Our 4-step Incubation Program is designed to meet you where you are.
Solving a Problem
Will it work? An entrepreneur joins our problem solving track to determine if their idea is workable and viable in the market. Together, we work to define the idea, the pain point it’s solving and gather market information.
Planning for Launch
How will it work? Once a business idea is determined to be viable, the entrepreneur enters the design stage. Here is where we determine all the pieces necessary to build an MVP or minimum viable product and test it with the right target market. This also includes developing out your pitch deck for potential investors.
Moving to Market
How do we get to market? Now that the entrepreneur has tested their product or service with the right target market and tweaked their offering to meet demand, it’s time to get the business off the ground by building systems, focusing on sales, and evaluating operations. This includes developing a go to market strategy, guerilla marketing techniques and targeted content.
Scaling for Growth
Are you ready to grow? If the answer is yes, then your startup has proven to be sustainable. Now is the time to scale through enhanced efficiencies and the right talent.
Business Incubation & Entrepreneurial Development
This full-time program is perfect for the entrepreneur who finds himself or herself in any of the four tracks listed above. No matter where you are, we can help you accelerate your journey into the next phase. Our 1-on-1 business coaching, hands-on workshops and support network of mentors and technical advisors can help guide you through an often turbulent process.
Chandler Innovations has developed a robust network of entrepreneurs, investors, c-suite executives and subject matter experts interested in sharing their time and expertise to support the next generation of entrepreneurs in launching and scaling their new businesses. We use two models of mentorship at CI: long-term strategic mentors and short-term technical advisors. Our mentors and advisors work in conjunction with our one-on-one coaches to support each of our clients. Specifically,
Long-term strategic mentors support an entrepreneur for at least a year; meeting every 4-6 weeks on average to provide high-level strategic oversight and directly support the entrepreneur in building and growing their business.
Short-term technical advisors agree to support an entrepreneur for a specific project, for example, developing financial statements or a sales strategy. This may take anywhere from 1-4 meetings over the course of 1-3 months.
Our focus is both on helping you build your business and growing as the leader of your organization.
