Arizona Business Council Kicks-Off 2015 with Two Business Catalyst Program Graduates
The Business Catalyst Program
The Business Catalyst Program is a rigorous review and evaluation of a company’s existing operations, team and business model as well as the current challenges and obstacles it is trying to overcome. With a dedicated team of business owners, executives and entrepreneurs specifically matched with each company – the Business Catalyst Program(TM) provides a detailed strategy plan, connects the company with valuable resources, and has a dedicated business liaison track that supports the company for a year after graduating.
The first two companies that have gone through and graduated from the BCP are GameTruck and STP Performance Coatings. “Two companies have just graduated from our Business Catalyst Program(TM) and we’re very excited with the success that it produced towards helping companies expand and become more sustainable, as well as swell the tide for the Phoenix business community,” stated Salli Marinov, co-founder and president of the Arizona Business Council and CEO of First American Stock Transfer. “We’re very thankful to GameTruck and STP for the opportunity to work with them in testing the Business Catalyst Program methodology and review process. We believe this is a fantastic venue for growth stage companies to connect with a larger support network and resources. Whether their goal is to develop more focus, expand, consolidate or become more attractive to possible investors, we have the expertise to help them reach their goals.”
