LEVEL UP Registration Deadline
March 31st!


Level Up is a leadership skills development program designed to give experienced leaders tools and a peer group for experience and resource sharing that will help them take their company to the next level. This program is led by the amazing Mary Sobon of m2 Consulting!

Most entrepreneurs don’t have the time to develop their leaders and give them all the tools they need to get to this next level. Level Up gets these leaders to think more like entrepreneurs and delivers leadership skill-building to leaders who may be wired differently than the founder of a company.

The application deadline is March 31st.

The workshops will be held at The Entrepreneur Center and virtually on April 14th and April 28th from 2pm-4pm each day! The total cost for participation is only $25 for both days.
