Accelerating Company Excellence (ACE) is designed to help small business owners learn new skills and reinforce best business practices by learning from subject matter experts in finance, sales, marketing, and accounting. ACE also offers the opportunity for in-person networking where business owners can share tips, challenges, and opportunities with each other.
Each ACE session is distinct and business owners do not need to attend all sessions to benefit from the curriculum.
The weekly events will feature a deep dive on specific skills necessary for businesses to accelerate their growth. Topics include best financial practices, do-it-yourself marketing, online sales, and team building and leadership.
ACE is sponsored by Fifth Third Bank, UHY, and the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti SmartZone Local Development Finance Authority (LDFA) and is presented in partnership with the Michigan Small Business Development Center and Washtenaw Community College.
