We believe the best way to identify whether you have a future as an upstart is to understand your unique personal and economic status. If you are a young entrepreneur with little or no experience, you will likely struggle to distinguish yourself from a herd of similar individuals. Our Upstarts training helps you to become a business person, one who has a strong foundation of core entrepreneurial skills. Our Upstarts course is targeted towards building a core network of network marketers and salespeople who are highly skilled at leveraging social skills, generating leads, selling a product and building a downline, while using their technical skills to promote the business.

As an upstart, you will need to demonstrate financial health. This includes building a downline with a minimal amount of financial risk. A financial plan should include projected profits, cash flow analysis, and realistic expectations for revenue and expenses. A solid business plan becomes vital for being accepted into any accelerator programs. You must be able to clearly define your strengths and develop a plan to bring those strengths to the forefront. We recommend that upstarts go through our comprehensive Entrepreneurial Planning Checklist.

To be accepted into an accelerator program, you will need to show future company leadership skills. This means that you must demonstrate a history of success as a leader in your field. Your history and results speak volumes for your potential as a leader. As we mentioned earlier, we focus heavily on the future aspects of your business. Therefore, we require an entrepreneur to demonstrate future managerial and leadership skills as a precursor to becoming an accelerator.
