Kauffman Foundation’s FastTrac® GrowthVenture™ program

Are you a small business owner who wants to take the next step?

Louisville Forward is offering a 10-week program for small business financial and strategic planning. 

Please note: The application window for the 10-week course beginning on August 16 is now closed. Check back often for details on the next class session. 


If you are a small business owner, chances are you started with a business plan. And if you haven’t revisited that plan since you started your business, you may need a new plan to move your business forward. A strategy for sustained, manageable growth can take your business to the next level.

Kauffman Foundation’s FastTrac® GrowthVentureTM program is a flexible 10-week course, offered by TKT & Associates, Inc. in a 3-hour/week format, with a proven framework to help established small business owners realize their business’ full potential through sustainable growth and operational efficiency. TKT provides certified facilitators to teach the courses in an interactive, group-oriented environment where participants can network with one another to bolster their business knowledge and ideas.

This course is for small business owners who are ready to grow, but don’t have the tools in place to reach the next step, whether it’s developing a finance or strategic plan, or expanding operations or locations. FastTrac GrowthVenture focuses on the issues needed to build and sustain growth.
