The Knoxville Area Urban League and Urban League of Greater Chattanooga have joined forces to host the next cohort of “NextLevel,” a business development program offered through a partnership between the Tennessee Valley Authority, Interise and Tennessee Urban League Affiliates.

According to this recent news article, the seven-month program, which began last week, will be offered online with 13 virtual sessions utilizing a nationally recognized curriculum to help business owners develop three-year strategic growth plans and a customized guide for sustaining growth. Participants will graduate with renewed mindsets and fresh perspectives on business growth, development, marketing, balancing cash flow and connecting with local and national resources that support small businesses.

“NextLevel is an impactful program that utilizes research-driven business development tools and local collaboration with industry professionals to help business owners build a strategic roadmap to business growth and success,” said Phyllis Y. Nichols, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Knoxville Area Urban League. “We deeply appreciate our community partners, Tennessee Valley Authority and Interise, for their commitment to entrepreneurs who are ready to take their next steps forward.”
