New school will offer child care, preschool | Charlotte North Carolina | Scoop.it

Parents soon will have another option in early-childhood education.

 

Providence Preparatory School - a new child-care center, preschool and more - is slated to launch in south Charlotte later this year.

 

The private, for-profit center will be on Providence Road near where it crosses Sharon Amity Road.

Providence Preparatory will offer a comprehensive array of components. The child-care center and preschool are to open in fall 2012, while a kindergarten planned for 2013.

 

After-school programs, but not school, for children in elementary grades also will be offered. Summer camps and extracurricular activities like dance lessons are other features.

 

The facility plans concierge-style amenities and services - such as arranging dry-cleaning - for parents. On-site training classrooms will meet continuing-education needs of the center's teachers, as well as other area teachers.

Charlotte Chamber - BIG Announces Results of Entrepreneurial Growth Survey for Charlotte Region

Charlotte Chamber - BIG Announces Results of Entrepreneurial Growth Survey for Charlotte Region | Charlotte North Carolina | Scoop.it

Today, the Business Innovation & Growth Council (BIG) announced the results of the first ever BIG Entrepreneurial Growth Index, led by Terry Cox, CEO of BIG, and David Jones, CEO of Peak 10, a longtime member and advisor to BIG.

 

The study, supported by quantitative data gathered from 94 high growth companies in the Charlotte, NC region, examined the growth history and investment profile of the area’s startup and entrepreneurial business community to uncover the high growth market size in Charlotte and what their impact on the community actually is.

 

“Based upon the survey results, we believe the high growth entrepreneurial economy accounts for more than one billion dollars in revenue within our region,” says Cox. “Beyond significant revenue, they contribute to job growth, healthy payrolls, and the potential to continue helping the economy grow in coming decades. It also confirms there is little involvement from institutional investors in area business.”

 

Jones adds, “As a long-time entrepreneur, this validates my belief that there is a significant, unsung population of vibrant growth companies here that typically get little recognition for the jobs and investment they make in the region. Numbers speak louder than words.”

 

*Key study findings include:

· A 25-30% average revenue growth rate over each of the last three years.

· A projected total of $650 million in revenue for 2012 with a growth rate of 30% over 2011.

· A 25% growth rate in employment with projected 622 new jobs in 2012 for the reporting companies in total

· An average of 30 employees per company over the last three years, with an average weighted salary of $55,000 per year

· Funding sources for businesses in the survey were as follows:

o 1% Venture Capital

o 12% Private Equity

o 22% Angel Investment

o 20% Bank Financing

o 45% Self Funded

· Fifty percent (50%) of the companies reporting are less than five years old; 80% are less than ten years old.
