Training & Development

Online training and development course on product development, innovation strategy video

Entrepreneurial organizations often hire raw, undeveloped talent, then struggle to provide the necessary training on business essentials to elevate their rising stars. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, companies with fewer than 100 employees provide only 12 minutes of manager training every 6 months. 

Accelerated Growth's Training & Development program teaches business essentials to empower the leaders of entrepreneurial organizations. Through a hybrid model, the program gives participants both the flexibility to take video courses whenever and wherever they want, and the structure of scheduled office hours to ensure key learnings are understood and applied to their business.
