What is Emerging Leaders?

Emerging Leaders is an executive education course for small businesses poised for growth. The course runs from April 2017 to October 2017.

The training program supports business growth by guiding participants in accessing new avenues of capital, new paths for business development and new connections to government resources and local business leaders.  Participants work with experienced mentors from the fields of accounting, finance and government contracting.  Participants also form peer-to-peer CEO Mentoring groups which allow for business relationships that continue after the course ends.  

Emerging Leaders - Albuquerque is one of 51 programs offered by the SBA nationwide.  In 2015, nationally, Emerging Leaders graduates reported:

  • An average 39% revenue growth, just one year after graduation
  • The creation of 400 new jobs, just one year after graduation
  • 96% satisfaction rating with the program
