The Aspiring Entrepreneur Program is a 10-week cohort program focused on education. Participants will leave with a validated business idea, an action plan, and a new entrepreneurial mindset that they can use to excel in their current job, leverage relationships and, of course, start or maintain a business.

Program includes:
  • Strategic planning
  • Business validation
  • Curriculum and materials
  • Certification support
  • Mentoring
  • Networking events


The program isn’t a business class. Instead, it is a preventive maintenance step to enhance the entrepreneurial mindset and develop functional skill sets to see and act like an entrepreneur.

After completing this course, you will be able to:
Understand business models and types of businesses
Identify opportunities based on real customer needs
Develop a promotion/ marketing campaign to appeal to consumers
Develop solid business models
Identify and develop great ideas into great companies
Create the company strategy
Understand access to capital
Create successful companies
