A Business Growth Initiative of the Capital Region Chamber

Propel is a business growth initiative of the Capital Region Chamber designed to help 2nd stage companies grow. These are companies that have moved beyond startup but haven’t yet reached maturity. These companies have revenues of $3 million – $50 million and between 15-100+ employees and are looking to expand into new markets, geographic areas or grow their product offerings.

Propel brings expertise and resources to fuel the growth of these second-stage companies in the Capital Region.

One of the resources of Propel is Economic Gardening through the Edward Lowe Foundation. Economic Gardening helps businesses with strategic issues and provides customized research. Research specialists will focus in on five key areas: core strategy, market dynamics, qualified sales leads, innovation and temperament.
