MELBOURNE, FLA. — weVENTURE, a Central Florida-based organization launched at Florida Institute of Technology that’s focused on accelerating sustainable business growth for entrepreneurs, is pleased to announce that three Brevard County companies graduated from its IGNITE 360® Business Mentoring Program.

Swanky Sole, owned and operated by Dawn Badolato, launched in July 2014. With the recent relocation of her store to Viera, Dawn took this opportunity to learn to develop strategy and reevaluate her growth plan by participating in the IGNITE 360 TRANSITION and ADVANTAGE programs.

Millefiori Medical Skin Rejuvenation owners Kyle Graham and Iris Kelley participated in the spring session of the IGNITE 360 PREMIER program to further grow their boutique medical spa, the first of its kind in Brevard County, and transition to adding new services.

ViaCloud Technologies, founded by Tish and Roland Calvert, is an SBA-certified 8(m) Woman Owned Small Business that delivers technology services and solutions to businesses and government agencies. ViaCloud participated in the IGNITE 360 ADVANTAGE program to learn more about what works for their particular business and construct a growth plan.

“We are so proud of this session’s graduates,” said weVENTURE Executive Director Beth Gitlin. “This group was truly diverse, representing all business levels and services, and their success shows how IGNITE 360’s range of programs ensures participants get maximum benefit.”

IGNITE 360 provides customized coaching and mentoring for entrepreneurs in all industries and stages of business, from at-revenue to emerging businesses to larger, second-stage companies. Program participants are matched with a select group of expert advisors who address current business challenges and determine strategic steps to reach desired outcomes.
