ShoreBank will fund two $4,500 scholarships to business owners who apply to participate in Case Weatherhead School of Management’s new program, Leading the Growth Enterprise (LGE): An Executive Experience for Leaders of Growing Businesses. The program -- designed for leaders of established, growing companies – provides personal business coaching and intensive learning sessions on critical issues from financial decision-making to leadership and strategy.

ShoreBank, known as a community development and environmental bank, recognized a strong connection between its core mission and Case Weatherhead’s program. “The scholarship is our shared commitment to help growing businesses and ensure that our communities are places where people want to live and work,” said Stephanie McHenry, president of ShoreBank in Cleveland.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with ShoreBank in this important endeavor and anticipate that their support will add materially to the improvement of economic outcomes in our region,” said Ron Fountain, executive director of the program.

Leading the Growth Enterprise helps business owners, owner-managers and designated successors of established, growth-oriented companies through a six-month coaching and learning process. The program gives entrepreneurs practical, effective approaches to handling the key challenges of creating a growing a business and leadership skills to sustain that performance.

Program participants attend an on-campus session one or two times each month from January to June. Sessions focus on key business issues, such as setting strategies for growth and stability, developing executive leadership skills and real-time application focused on personal business challenges. Additionally, participants receive personal business coaching for a specific project that relates to their business.

Applications must be received by December 15, and they can be submitted online at http://weatherhead.case.edu/exed/ent.cfm. For additional information, contact james.vandoren@case.edu or call 216/368-6413.
