Opportunity for Entrepreneurs

Burton D. Morgan Foundation is partnering with Edward Lowe Foundation to provide an exceptional growth opportunity to 20 leaders of second-stage NEO-based companies. 

To qualify for this opportunity, your privately-owned Northeast Ohio-based business should generate revenues between $1M and 50M, and employ between 10 and 99 staff members.  You must be available to attend a retreat in Michigan and possess an attitude and an aptitude for growth.

If selected, you will join a cohort of your peers and attend the Big Rock Valley Leadership Retreat in Michigan, March 21 - 23, 2023.  Post-retreat, your cohort provides a confidential forum for members to meet virtually to share their challenges and experiences and enhance their leadership capabilities.  We are looking for founders and entrepreneurs with an attitude and an aptitude for growth.  Expenses to attend the leadership retreat will be paid for by Burton D. Morgan Foundation.

If you are interested and meet the criteria, please complete the application by January 11, 2023, and email it to Gina Dotson at
