Who's it for?
Entrepreneurs in the "High Country"/ Boone-area.
What problem does it solve?
Entrepreneurs face specific challenges when developing business plans, exploring new markets, seeking capital, or managing current assets.
How does it help?
Through our intensive 6-week Business Development Course and offering one-on-one technical assistance, we provide entrepreneurs the resources they need to be successful.
Ascent developed out of a need to connect High Country entrepreneurs with the resources that work best for them. As a High Country Local First program, we want to give people the opportunity and means to be able to stay here by starting their own businesses.
