    SEA-LA, Lift Your Business, and Cross Campus Present: Scaleupathon



    Social Enterprise Alliance, Lift Your Business, and Cross Campus come together to present Scaleupathon for LA's Social Entrepreneurial community. Scaleupathon is a marketing and culture development hackathon for social enterprises and small business owners who want to scale up their business and profits.  

    During this experience you will workshop a new business tool, Profitlandia, which will allow you to explore core messaging, business strategies, and develop systems to grow your customer base and your profits. This is an opportunity to explore your own business and share feedback with like-minded entrepreneurs. Profitlandia is a tool that is played like a game, so come alone or bring your thought partners to share in the learning that can support your business year after year!
