PROVEN Curriculum | EXPERIENCED Coaching | POWERFUL Connections

You Have The Idea. We Have The Experience.

Most entrepreneurs are smart.  Really smart.  They have deep industry experience, and they know how to drive innovation with new products and new markets.  The challenge is building a venture that will last - a venture that is profitable, scalable, and sustainable.

Don't go it alone.  Get your competitive edge with TEN - The Entrepreneurs Network.

TEN will give your all the information you need to develop a winning growth strategy, and then connect you with the resources needed to make it happen.  TEN coaches are experts in business development, sales and marketing integration, business financial models, and operations.  And TEN instructors are leaders who themselves have built successful companies.

You'll Learn What You Need to Succeed.

Entrepreneurs who are accepted pay for an experience TEN alumni have described as "an Executive MBA - on steroids!" 

More importantly, TEN participants gain a network of business and technical experts who can help them avoid pitfalls and seize opportunities as soon as they arise.

  • Building Blocks in Marketing, Sales, Finance and Leadership
