It all starts
with a catalyst.

It could be an insight that powers an innovation. A conversation that sparks the right connections. A big idea that crystalizes into a big opportunity. Suddenly, the needle moves. Waves of energy are unleashed. And a business’s potential for success shoots right off the charts. Imagine an environment where that happens by design. Where entrepreneurs can experiment with new possibilities. Learn from successful business leaders. And find the catalyst they need to accelerate their growth.

Finally there’s a resource for entrepreneurs who are looking for help taking their companies to the next level.

We offer transformative learning. Your business is the case study. We apply learning directly into what you need to grow and flourish. BIG is a collaborative environment where participants meet in person 12 times over a six-month period, and engage in strategic conversations that stimulate game-changing ideas. As a center for creative thinking, we leverage regional institutions, research and resources to fuel innovation.

The curriculum

Just as each business is unique, BIG is customized to address the unique needs of each participant. Our curriculum evolves organically as entrepreneurs ask questions, implement new learnings, and bring updates back to the group. Your business becomes the case study.
