Milestone Makers

Program dedicated to helping founders hit a critical business goal – all at no cost.

Selected entrepreneurs receive individualized business mentoring, personal coaching, training, and resources.

At the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center, we’re committed to investing in the individuals taking big risks to solve problems in new ways. That's why we created Milestone Makers, a way to help late-early to mid-stage entrepreneurs set, hit, and celebrate milestones critical to company growth.

Through our expertise and prestigious business network, we work with a small cohort of entrepreneurs one-on-one to define a critical business goal and accelerate their path to achieving it. Participants are individually matched with personal coaches and business mentors who are leaders in your industry, offer instant feedback, and take a personal interest in helping them grow.

Upon acceptance, we offer customized resources to meet the founder's needs and learning style. This three-month program helps elevate and amplify the entrepreneur’s brands through media and PR opportunities.

The Center, in partnership with our corporate sponsors, is proud to make this a free program with a pay-it-forward philosophy. As a distinguished part of our community, Milestone Makers will return to teach, share, and nominate the next cohort of great leaders.

What is a Milestone? Here’s the definition we’re using.
Milestone noun /ˈmīlˌstōn/
  1. An important goal you’ve set for your business that takes time, tenacity, and more than a little creative thinking to attain. 
  2. An achievement that signals your business is on its way to the next stage of growth (and that deserves celebration). 

The inaugural program kicked off in September 2016 in the Bay Area.

Who is this program for?

Late-early to mid-stage entrepreneurs looking to grow their business to the next level.

Value: Individualized resources and learning experiences to accelerate the founder’s growth over a concentrated 12-week period with recognition at a graduation ceremony.
