Last year at this time, Gesmer Updegrove participated in and sponsored a program entitled, “Business Fundamentals Bootcamp” at the Cambridge Innovation Center, hosted by Acceleration Partners and Supporting Strategies. The program was designed for CXOs of start-up and growth stage companies. The event included speakers and panelists who lent their expertise on tactical issues and opportunities for growing businesses focused on topics in marketing, finance, law and human resources. The curriculum was very tactical in nature, providing expert guidance; tools and takeaways that business leaders needed to address, such as core growth and risk areas.
Business Fundamentals Bootcamp II will be held on March 25th, 2011 from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, again at the Cambridge Innovation Center. The theme of the event is “Early Stage Maneuvers for a Successful Exit”” and will focus on building businesses from the ground up with an exit in mind. Both Bill Contente, Gesmer Partner, and Steve Snyder, Gesmer Entrepreneur-in-Residence, will be participating in the program.
