The program is free and provides firms with the organizational structure, resource network, and assistance needed to build a sustainable business of size and scale. It begins in April at the Franklin Savings Bank’s Community Learning Center in Tilton and is delivered in 13 sessions held every other Tuesday morning through October. Over the course of seven months, participants are given the opportunity to work with experienced mentors and develop connections with their peers, community leaders, and the financial community.
