This was not done by accident. Executive Director Eric Smith will take you through the organization’s growth journey, focusing on the strategy they developed at the end of 2019, and how they managed to execute on their strategy in the midst of the 2020 pandemic. The conversation will highlight UACI’s planning process, identified areas of focus, execution and the results realized so far. This session will benefit those who are thinking of starting an incubator program or taking an established program to the next level.
