Educational Programs

The Entrepreneurs Network (TEN)

Managed by HTR, The Entrepreneurs Network (TEN) is an innovative program designed to provide Rochester-area entrepreneurs with significant hands-on exposure to, and interaction with, national and regional business experts and funding sources. 

TEN has an exclusive, members-only class. Typically, its members are founders, senior executives, CEOs or others who hold a controlling position in a new venture (early-stage technology, life science) or in an established firm (scalable high-revenue, family-owned, ownership transitioning) with business operations primarily in Upstate New York.

TEN’s focus consists of “boot camps” on securing equity investments and traditional financing, effective sales and marketing strategies, and leadership and business strategies for today's competitive environment. 

TEN augments its program activities with "Lunch and Learn" and other special events to offer training, education and networking to connect entrepreneurs, established firms, academic institutions and investment resources to advance the regional economy.
