Accelerate Roundtable Program for Leadership Development

Leadership Development

Accelerate Roundtable Program

Connecting like-minded business leaders to accelerate their businesses.

Better Together

Every two months in downtown Pensacola, business leaders are getting together to talk about what keeps them up at night. We live in a digital age, but something special happens when in-person communication occurs. Not only are relationships built, but real problems are brought to the table, brainstorming begins, and solutions are offered. Our Accelerate Roundtable Program offers a unique opportunity for business leaders to gather in a safe, supportive environment.

Participating in this type of program improves the chances of a small business succeeding in the first 5 years. Having a mentor (and the support of other business leaders) is invaluable.
