An accelerator is a program that helps companies grow both quickly and sustainability, gaining tools, tactics, and strategies to do so. Our accelerator is designed for existing businesses with a viable product or service that is looking to take their companies to the next level. Curriculum is facilitated by experts, business owners, program alum, and faculty, with topics focusing primarily on sales, marketing, finances, operations, and organizational development.

SPARC is designed for Black-, Hispanic-, and women-owned companies under $1M in annual revenue. SPARC is held virtually over 10 weeks in the Spring and the Fall. The fee for SPARC is $500 and includes Scale Up Milwaukee Membership during the length of SPARC.
