Co-owners and chief brand strategists at Kudzu Brands, Murphy Funkhouser Capps and Heather Johnson, are excited to have been chosen for the Mountain BizWorks’ WNC ScaleUp 2019 program-Spring Cohort! Every other Friday, for 14 weeks, they will attend a full-day workshop alongside other high potential businesses in WNC to learn critical skills for scaling and taking Kudzu Brands to the next level. They will also participate in one-on-one mentoring as well as a showcase event at the end of the program.

Kudzu Brands, one of Asheville’s top branding agencies, is the place where “story and strategy intertwine.” Kudzu combines strategic business and marketing guidance with expert brand design to help hundreds of businesses achieve their growth goals and beyond.

This is why they are passionate about growing other businesses, and yet, just as excited to take the time to grow their own business! Murphy and Heather have decided to commit their Fridays to the program because they believe in on-going education as well and that businesses should ALWAYS  be growing. After all…that’s the belief they hold for each and every one of their clients!

The purpose of ScaleUp WNC is to provide an educational intensive to 15 small businesses with high potential for growth. Scaleup was created with the intention to continue bolstering innovation and economic development across WNC.

ScaleUp WNC is provided by Mountain BizWorks, which offers loans to small businesses across the region who may find it difficult to procure loans otherwise. By giving them the resources they need, they can thrive and contribute to the growth of the community.

Their hope is to continue to inspire Asheville’s innovative and highly creative spirit. As they say, “When small businesses succeed, we all prosper.”
