4. About The Organization:

This organization (Business Acceleration System) works with entrepreneurs over a nine parish region here in central Louisiana.  They have an amazing track record of helping entrepreneurs take their businesses to the next level. ($169M in increased revenue over the past 5 years)  You can learn more about their organization here:


Here’s one 3 minute video that sums up the impact they are having:


Due to their charter, and the sources they receive funding from, they are unable to charge people to attend the seminars/workshops they put on, and are required to make the events available to the public.  However, they do have a budget for speakers and the promotion of each event.

They group their entrepreneurs into three groups:  

Entry Level: those just starting – or hoping to start soon

Emerging Level: businesses typically doing over $200,000 per year

Advanced Level: businesses typically doing over $1,000,000 per year

However, these levels are primary based on the skill development of each entrepreneur.

5. Length of event:

The events we have done in the past have ranged from 3.5 hours to full-day events.  We are very flexible with regard to the type of event, as well as the content that would be presented. The goal of each event is to provide each entrepreneur tools, resources, and knowledge to help them go back an make positive, lasting, changes in their businesses.

However, the primary focus this year is on teaching entrepreneurs how to scale their businesses.

6. Previous Speakers:

They attempt to have somewhere between four and six of these events each year.

Here’s a partial list of speakers from 2013:
