Seasoned advice can prove invaluable to a startup. We grant Forge tenants access to a panel of 50 local business leaders who have agreed to share their hard-won knowledge.
This Forge mentorship program is a network of local experts who have each agreed to give an hour of free service per month, per mentor. With over 15 categories and 50 committed community business leaders and experts, the Bull-Pen gives Forge members access to the diverse skill-sets and professional services they need to succeed in their early years.
Death and taxes are two inescapable truths. UNLESS you office at The Forge! As a certified incubator, all tenants receive a tax break for up to five years after graduation.
Once you become a tenant of a certified incubator, you have exemption from your company’s state income tax for up to five years (whether in the incubator or not). That can extend up to 10 years, if at least 75 percent of your sales are to out-of-state buyers. This means more cash in your pocket to grow your company.
Designed to give startups and growth companies a 360° view of their organization, GrowthWheel allows them to narrow their focus, set an agenda, and take action.
Focus areas include; creating an attractive business concept, building a strong organization behind it, developing lasting client relations, and doing so while maintaining profitable operations. Forge tenants receive a GrowthWheel assessment upon intake, valuable tools from the toolbox each week, and regular follow-up consulting relevant to their focus areas.
