NDH is proud to continue its sponsorship of the Chicago chapter of the Startup Leadership Program (SLP), and we jumped at the chance to help kick-off the start of the chapter’s second year. We joined local SLP alumni and program leaders last week in welcoming the newest group of 17 Fellows. The SLP is a comprehensive classroom style program that hopes to prepare participants to be the world’s best-trained Startup CEOs. The program runs from early September through February and has a complete curriculum that covers topics including pitch & business plan evaluations, financial modeling, and lean startup strategy & customer development. We had a fantastic time getting to know this year’s Fellows and hearing about their business endeavors, and we wish them the best of luck!
