Business Scaling Program

Scale Your Business with LBAN

About the Program

LBAN’s Business Scaling program is a 9-week hybrid program. Participants will spend two weekends at the Stanford Graduate School of Business with Stanford faculty, engaged in lectures, workshops, networking, and opportunities to redefine their growth mindset. In addition to the in-person time at Stanford, the program includes 8 weeks of the online curriculum with a weekly live webinar every Wednesday.

 

The program is designed so that business leaders can continue running their business back at their office/home location while participating in this Stanford program with other Latino business leaders around the country. Upon completion, the participant will receive a certificate from Stanford Executive Education. 

 

We offer the program twice per year, in Spring and Fall. Apply for the upcoming cohort.

Take ACTION for your BUSINESS

Join a powerful network of Latino entrepreneurs who are committed to growing their businesses.  By participating in the program, you will develop a growth mindset, inspiring you to look at your company differently.  Through the program, you will have an experienced mentor to challenge you, support you, and help you apply the curriculum to your business. You will be immersed in a network of Latino business leaders from across the country, who are all eager to guide their company to the next level.  In addition, you will learn about funding and capital options, financial management, and have various exercises to prepare you for conversations that you will have with capital providers. This online program requires two weekends at Stanford Graduate School of Business.
