The goal of TEN is grass roots economic development through Network Facilitation, use of volunteer time – neighbor helping neighbor and effective use of readily available resources. The activities to achieve these goals are:

  • Awareness. This outreach component is aimed at promoting awareness of entrepreneurship throughout the community in an effort to enhance our entrepreneurial culture, generate client inquiries, and recruit volunteers.
  • One-on-one client orientation and coaching.  The orientation and coaching component is aimed at listening to and assessing the client’s business, strategy, and goals; identifying strategic needs; orienting the client to available services; networking them with the most relevant assistance; and providing on-going coaching to the client.
  • Social Capital.  The networking component is the core element of the model, upon which effectiveness, results and sustainability are dependent.  The networking element involves establishing a network of regional advisors from a variety of industries and professions, who can lend their knowledge and experience to the challenges faced by the entrepreneur.
