What Is NxLevel, and What Can You Learn?

The NxLevel program covers all phases of business planning through lectures, presentations, one-on-one mentoring and networking. It includes defining, improving, and expanding or launching a business. Classes cover marketing, social media, business negotiations, an understanding of financial statements, and efficient management.

Each week, attendees learn from guest speakers (lawyers, bankers, CPAs, and successful entrepreneurs) who bring their expertise in special areas of business operations. Attendees will research and write a comprehensive business plan and hone their business savvy.  Participants also learn new critical thinking skills, which lead to key strategies for their business.
