AXIS Powered by Francis Tuttle

Guiding entrepreneurs from vision to reality

AXIS is a multi-faceted startup and small-business support system that provides a pathway to success for our community's thriving entrepreneurs.

Expert and dedicated professionals are available to advise business owners both new and established on how to overcome the constraints to growth and improve business and management skills.

The state-certified small business incubator supports both new ventures and early-stage companies. The end goal of the incubation process is to "graduate" the client and ensure they are prepared with a sustainable business that can then contribute to the wider community.

AXIS also supports new business concepts with a startup pre-accelerator. This serves to connect the talents and ideas of local entrepreneurs with the resources that build successful businesses.

The long-term goal of AXIS is to serve as both a catalyst and a community for entrepreneurship, supporting a new wave of ventures that shape the future of the business community.
