Retreat Program Description

"Alpine" is a business retreat (Apr. 27-29) that gives you the opportunity to assess how your business has been going up to this point, while also visioning for the future. This process, offered within a peer-to-peer learning environment, will reconnect you to the “why” of your venture and help create in-roads to meeting both your short- and long-term goals. This three-day version of a longer course (description here) also provides the opportunity to determine if and when to scale your business model.

Annie Milroy Price, founder of Birdseye Business Planning & Adventures and lead designer of the Business Foundations curriculum, will lead the retreat. NEOEDD staff will be in attendance as well.
