Become a member
Most folks become members by attending our Startup 101 class, but there are some exceptions for those further along in their planning and who already have a business plan or lean canvas.
Please take a moment to fill out the Interest Form below and we'll send you next steps via email. We typically respond to Interest Form submissions each Tuesday and Friday.
Preview of next steps...
If you are starting off with Startup 101, next steps will include completing an intake survey and selecting a date to attend.
If you are further along and want to bypass Startup 101, you'll need to share a copy of your business plan or lean canvas and complete the intake survey to join as a Network Member.
In either case, once you complete the onboarding requirements, you'll then create your Member Profile and have access to the member-only resources.
Hold on. Why is this free? What's the catch?
We knew you were smart. But don't worry it just costs your time. About 30 minutes a year.
As an economic development nonprofit, we rely on grants and funding that require annual reporting on the economic impact of the work that we do. That means that we need your help. As a participant in 101, you will automatically be enrolled in our AZ Navigator Program.
A couple times a year we will ask you to complete a survey that helps us measure our impact in economic terms. Your data is de-identified for reporting and secure. Completing these annual surveys allows you to stay active in the Member Network and retain access to all these great benefits!
We appreciate your part in helping us to measure and track the role of entrepreneurship in our community’s economic vitality.
