Entrepreneur Division

TheProgressing Business Institute invites business owners and managers of enterprises who value independence, innovation and risk as well as the opportunity for profit, to join our Entrepreneurs Cluster.

The Division goal is to help members start, manage or grow successful business ventures, particularly those which aim to create new or innovative opportunities.

The Division encourages the development of an entrepreneurial culture, supported by a pool of resources and successful models to follow. We do this by bringing together a network of like minded business professionals, who are truly passionate about economic development and who enjoy promoting the formation and success of innovative, growth-oriented, and profitable companies.
The Division provides networking opportunities in an open and learning environment, where members are encouraged to develop important entrepreneurial skills such as performance measurement, customer trends, competitive surveys, opportunity analysis, performance efficiency, strategic plans, operational objectives and SMART goals, as well as quality, environmental, and risk management.

Our Division members are motivated, prepared, smart, and tenacious. Men and Women who 'dream the POSSIBLE dream' and contribute generously to our future together.

If your profile meets this broad description of an "Entrepreneur" then the Progressing Business Institute would like to hear from YOU.
