CMURC has teamed up with Chambers of Commerce and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to bring you an exciting new program for entrepreneurs. The Passport program is offered by CMURC to new business ventures that are being facilitated by CMURC or the SBDC. Facilitation includes receiving consulting and/or coaching services to accelerate the business.

The Passport Program gives you access to necessary avenues to launch a new business. Benefits include (but not limited to):

Access and discounts to various business networking events.

Providers from across the state offer significant discounts to services every startup company needs.

The Passport will also give access to a network of entrepreneurs who have either started a new business or are in the process of starting one. Many of the challenges of starting a new business are similar, and having the opportunity to exchange thoughts on these challenges can be priceless. The network will provide a peer to peer connection in a private environment consisting of “invite only” businesses with a passport. A Facebook profile is needed to access this network.

Facilitated clients who sign up for a program will receive an identification card AKA “Passport”. This Passport will be used when approaching service providers for discounted services.

The Passport Program membership grants your 2-year access to the chamber of commerce and CMURC service providers.

One-time fee of $320 for 2-year membership.
