Pipeline recently announced that applications are now open for its 2014 Entrepreneurial Fellowship. The Kansas City-based leadership development program and entrepreneurial network accepts about 10 entrepreneurs into its membership each year. Applications are free and the deadline is Oct. 21, 2013.
According to Pipeline’s website, Fellowship members will be able to attend various functions and networking events for entrepreneurs to connect and openly exchange ideas and tips for growing businesses. Members will also be able to engage with entrepreneurial advisers.
“We focus on the entrepreneur’s leadership and skill development – not just their company growth. Our hope is that our work with each Fellow will build the skills and networks needed over a lifetime as an entrepreneur – and over multiple ventures,” the Pipeline website said.
While there aren’t specific requirements to becoming a fellow, many applicants are running technology– or consumer-based business in the Midwest, experiencing high growth in their businesses and are founders and/or CEOs of their companies.
