Criteria for Membership
An entrepreneur running a scalable business located in the Rochester region that exists to serve a market much larger than the local one. Typical number of employees exceeds ten, but start-up entrepreneurs are included if they’ve held a senior management position in a successful entrepreneurial company before or if they have raised a material round of outside financing. Serial entrepreneurs who have been involved with a successful start-up and are seeking new opportunities are also welcome.
To date, average employment is 40-50 people. Industries are as diverse as the local economy – IT, optics, health care, telecom, software, misc. services. Service providers such as attorneys, accountants and consultants are not appropriate members, though they are welcome to sponsor events. The best source of new members is the entrepreneurs who have already learned about the organization and attend events.
The organizers of RochesterGrowth invite you to sponsor our next entrepreneurs event. For sponsorship inquiries visit our Contact page.
