Evolve Operations Now Enrolling Growth Stage Startups
We noticed a gap in the startup ecosystem in North Carolina. Early stage startups have a lot of support, but after you raise a round, the resources tend to dry up. There are a few reasons for that; (1) As you scale your company, you have rigid constraints on your time, (2) the problems you are solving become increasingly complex and company-specific, and (3) it is difficult to bring together similar stage peer founders due to geographic dispersal. We interviewed dozens of North Carolina’s startup founders before developing the Evolve Bootcamp series that solves these three problems.
Evolve Bootcamp brings founders together virtually to learn from expert facilitators how to apply methodologies, put systems in place, and develop the relationships needed to scale. Evolve facilitators are multi-exited serial entrepreneurs with experience in a variety of verticals and geographies. Founders leave the Bootcamp with a better understanding of your business and a clear plan for growth.

4-weeks, self-paced + expert facilitation + community events
Evolve Operations Bootcamp is a resource for startups who have raised a round of funding and are seeking to scale their business operations. Open to founders, C-suite and other early employees. Business leaders at this stage have little time and increasingly complex company-specific problems. This bootcamp offers self-paced learning to respect your time and personalized consulting to immediately contextualize and apply your learning to your specific business needs.
This 4-week program will consist of:
- Prepare for the class with pre-work assigned before Kick-off.
- A virtual, facilitated, “meet & greet” event where participants can get to know each other, ask questions, and meet the facilitators.
- Weekly, progressive, self-paced online learning focused on scaling business operations
- Weekly 1-on-1 Consultation Call with a startup expert to review work progress and move your strategy in the right direction – specific to your business.
- Access to Evolve Socialization Events – such as Virtual Beverage Nights and cohort meetups
- Graduation pitch night with a chance to tell your company’s stories to the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
At the end of this bootcamp you should have:
✔ A shared definition of what operations means for your specific business
✔ A current and target operating model
✔ A set of S.M.A.R.T. operational key performance indicators (KPI)
✔ A scaling strategy specific to the needs of your business
✔ A company “North Star”
✔ A strong community of relationships with other growth-stage entrepreneurs, advisors and investors
