A lack of social capital — networks of relationships with potential investors, seasoned advisors and reputable contractors — is a major reason why 90 percent of small businesses fail, according to Dun and Bradstreet, the business data research firm.
Given the statistics, there's no denying the importance of social capital in driving your business or social venture to the top. With access to social capital, small businesses and entrepreneurs can capitalize on the valuable information, tools, and resources they need for success.
The SCES Academy is a one-of-a-kind, five-week program designed to help entrepreneurs increase their social capital with key “Opportunity Guides” – experts in marketing, sales, contract procurement, law, accounting, business development, hiring, financing, and more – the people who can help your businesses grow.
All SCES participants get free one year access to “MY Opportunity HUB,” a platform that supports social capital building today so your business will be a success tomorrow.
