A special, two to four hour (or more, depending on the number of people you bring) informational exchange exercise to have you identify your resources, attributes and aptitude for the entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial process, evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, set goals for what your business and/or career might accomplish in 3 to 5 years, construct a preliminary strategy to achieve your objective(s), begin the next step(s) for the idea, business, career or practice and, if you wish, examine the requirements to see if it is appropriate for you to be in an Entrepreneurial Development Program(sm) of the incubators.
We are currently performing Assessments only on Wednesdays, 9:30 AM at The HESS Club, 5430 Westheimer or you can choose a Remote Assessment conducted via Skype.
The Assessment is a mandatory step in the event you are seeking funding for a startup venture or expansion capital for an established venture and an excellent first step in moving the idea forward even should you not be seeking capital.
The Assessment is divided into several modules lasting from 15 to 30 minutes each and define the next step in the development of the idea, business, career or practice. Some modules are written, others are oral. As each module is completed, the Assessment proceeds into the next. Portions of the modules are video-taped for quality control.
Some of the exercises are timed so that you may compare your responses with others who have taken the Assessment. The value of a total immersion structured development methodology is explored with the interaction of the advisory board, mentor and professional development coach. The importance of an accountability schedule is discussed and what that might look like in your case.
No public funds, grants, contributions or donations are sought or accepted. The co-op and business incubators are models for self-sufficiency and, as a demonstration of proficiency, are entirely self-sufficient, relying on fees for services performed.
To put you at risk and have you fully participate in the assessment, a sliding scale fee is charged. You set the rate based on your level of financial resource, sophistication, number of years in business and unique entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial acumen. (Minimum and maximum rates are determined by the incubator executive committee and not the research department.) At the close of the session, in the event that you don't feel as though you received your money's worth, your fee is declined. No hassle. The customer is always right.
The Assessment is performed under a complete confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement.
