-Starting Up (<--- click to register for session beginning August 28th)
This is for the brand new entrepreneur who maybe doesn't even have a bank account set up yet. You've got an idea, part of a plan and you know that's not enough. This six-week session will walk you through the why, how, regulations, legal, financial as well as your personal to-do list to get this show on the road.
-Leveling Up (<--- click to register for session beginning October 1st)
You've got some time under your belt and you've seen some success but now you're stuck with either shelling out for more staff (can we afford that?) or turning down offers from potential clients. How do you stay fund-able, grow a team, and avoid the stagnation between periods?
-Exit Strategies (We are not currently offering this program, please check back FALL 2019)
This program is NOT for business owners ready to retire. Sure, you're welcome and the info will be relevant but instead we're hoping you'll attend this program at the beginning of your entrepreneurial career. How long are you in for? What's this going to take from you personally? What are you committed to withstand? How will you know it's working? When/how/and to who will this be passing off to or will it fade into the sunset when you walk away? All that and more.
