Entrepreneurial Coaching Programs

Are you looking to take your business to the next level? Do you want your business to thrive and be successful? As an entrepreneur, it can be lonely and difficult. A business coach can be a beneficial sounding board and provide a helpful outside perspective on your business.

The Whitewater University Innovation Center offers a variety of coaching programs to suit your needs. Why do we offer various coaching programs? Each coaching program has its own philosophy and unique coaching approach. The variety of coaching programs allows us to tailor the coaching program to the client’s needs. The majority of our business coaches are certified through one of three programs: GrowthWheel, Wendy Kennedy, or Innovatrium.

The framework focuses on 4 key challenges – Business Concept, Organization, Client Relations, and Operations. The framework is designed to help you create an attractive business concept, build a strong organization, develop lasting client relations, and maintain profitable operations.
