It is difficult for many members of the Entrepreneurial Leaders Program to invest the $10,000 program fee in their personal development rather than investing in additional company resources.
To make the program accessible to as many deserving CEOs as possible, the Institute relies on the generosity of sponsors who contribute $5000 to help with the overall costs of the program, which exceeds $25,000 per participant.
The sponsors who are invited to participate have reached a stage where they want to “give back” their accumulated resources and experience. To deepen the sponsorship experience, the Institute acts as a concierge to arrange one-to-one 30-minute meetings between the sponsor and three entrepreneurs in the program.
Sponsors share a belief that investing in the region’s high-growth potential entrepreneurs will provide tangible dividends. Sponsors receive a charitable donation tax receipt for their donation.
