Lou Davenport, long-time member of SCORE Lancaster, was named 2009 “Member of the Year.” 

Davenport was recognized by Chapter Chairman Jerry Glenn for his leadership of the chapter’s certification and implementation of the Kauffman FastTrac® business education program. FastTrac is a 12-week program that leads emerging entrepreneurs through a process of assessment and feasibility in order to reach go-no go decisions about their business concepts.

 Davenport organized the chapter FastTrac effort, including certification of facilitators, selection and training of coaches, and collaboration with other community groups to generate awareness of and participation in the program.  In addition, he forged a working relationship with ASSETS Lancaster to mount a coordinated effort to reach and qualify participants, and to help manage the program.

 In the initial FastTrac implementation, 19 participants completed the program – 15 indicated that they will pursue their businesses, and all recommended the program to other emerging entrepreneurs. 

Davenport has volunteered to manage the FastTrac program again in March 2010.
