Post-conference (end of conference):
This instrument is designed to provide insight into the training event in each city with regard to utility of topics, quality on instruction, and the overall training ‘experience.’ In addition, this instrument will assess the participant’s beliefs with regard to such outcomes as the extent to which the V-WISE IGNITE program was effective in preparing them to pursue their entrepreneurial goals.
Annual post-conference (after one year of graduation):
This instrument will focus on tracking business success metrics and life/family outcomes as they relate to the IGNITE program and the participant’s entrepreneurial goals.
The assessment program detailed above is well positioned to confer significant insight into the efficacy of the IGNITE program with regard to entrepreneurial development and resulting life outcomes across the community of V-WISE and IGNITE graduates and their families.
