Entrepreneur roadmapping the big idea

This business start-up course helps anyone become an entrepreneur. If you ever wanted to start a new business but do not know how to start or where to begin, this is the course for you! The course is broken into 4 days covering 10 sessions and each session is taught by an industry expert with many years of experience. A binder full of business resources and the lectures is also included with this course.

You will be able to participate in classroom discussions and “make mistakes” in a classroom setting rather than in the real world.
