T3 President, Amy Morris, was accepted into a new program for small business owners, called Scaling4Growth (S4G) that is administered by the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity. This program is powered by Interise's award-winning StreetWise 'MBA'™ curriculum that provides the knowledge and know-how business owners need to grow in size and revenue.
Amy joins the second class of 16 participants selected via a highly competitive process that reflects a variety of industries around the Commonwealth. The program begins in August, 2017 and will conclude in February, 2018.
Interise licenses the Streetwise ‘MBA’™ to state agencies and other partners throughout the United States who then deliver it through their own locally branded programs. The investment by Virginia is intended to result in job creation and economic development by helping small companies succeed and expand.

· Certified by Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity as a Small, Women- or Minority-Owned (SWaM) business
· $250,000 - $10,000,000 in annual revenues
