HENDERSONVILLE – Registration is now open for the 2024 Mission Acceleration Business Accelerator program at Blue Ridge Community College.

For the sixth consecutive year, Blue Ridge and the Henderson County Chamber of Commerce have partnered to offer the Mission Acceleration Business Accelerator: a five-month, ten-session program for business owners to innovate and improve their businesses. 

Led by the program’s Executive Director Gary Heisey, participants learn from local entrepreneurs and experts in business management, leadership, planning, branding, marketing, logistics, sales, accounting, purchasing, raising capital, information technology, human resources, time management, new business development, operations, and distribution.

Over the course of 10 sessions, these local leaders provide proven business strategies related to the service, tourism, manufacturing, retail, wholesale, real estate, construction, professional, and education sectors.

This year, 12 companies will be selected to participate in the program. To determine if the program may be right for a company, a Business Success Self-Test is available at
