TVX is a 10-part virtual cohort series designed to help emerging companies in Colorado’s advanced industries to overcome hurdles in order to accelerate growth and development. The format, topics and tangible assistance the program offers was developed by the Colorado SBDC from success working with early- and second-stage science and technology ventures for more than 10 years. TVX focuses on growth through non-dilutive capital sources (so you aren’t giving away any equity in your company) and technology commercialization.

The series combines a virtual peer group format with more than 30 hours of strategic growth consulting:

  • 10-Session Peer Group Format: These 90-minute virtual sessions are facilitated discussions with founders/C-level executives and subject matter experts where challenges and successes are shared to find constructive solutions.
  • 30 Hours of Ongoing, Strategic Growth Consulting: Lead consultants and subject matter experts provide market research and assistance with commercialization plans, business development and overall business structure—all customized for your business’ stage, situation and goals.
