For those looking to jump-start the business to the next level, we offer the Six Week Sprint, an open-enrollment, short-term program.

Participants in the Six Week Sprint have included tech startups, non-profits, small business owners, and more. Each peer group is kept small and is limited to 10 participants.

Objectives

Jump start your operating style and get on track to generate your first (or next) $100K in revenue.

Methodology

The Six Week Sprint follows the same methodology of the $1MM bootcamp, and offers a fast-paced peer mentoring experience to build fundamental business skills.

The Sprint provides an experience and structure in which founders and small business owners can apply best practices of financial management, bootstrapping, and project management, to pull the pieces of project together and successfully accelerate toward revenue generation.

What Participants Say

"The Portland Ten Six Week Sprint is perfect for any business owner who is overwhelmed, losing focus, or simply wants to increase revenue. As an entrepreneur starting a new business, I didn’t know where to start or what to spend my time on. This program has quickly given me the structure I need to launch, sell, and market this new business."

-Kate Walling

"As a newer business owner, I have found Portland Ten’s Six Week Sprint to be very valuable in building my business. I have made many contacts and leads that I would not have otherwise made without the program. It has been great to be a part of a supportive group that is invested in your success and is eager to help. 

"During our individual weekly meetings, Carolynn has challenged me to become more successful in my marketing efforts and has filled in the gaps where my skills were lacking. I would recommend Portland Ten’s Six Week Sprint to any new entrepreneurs who would like fresh perspective, feedback, and assistance in generating more revenue."
