Take our 3-day Fast Track “bootcamp” program.  This course was developed by industry professionals to provide you the basic tools you need to start your business.  This is ideal for prospective businesses with little to no time but a willingness and desire to learn the language of business, determine whether starting a business makes sense and if so, specific steps to start the business.

The purpose of this course is to provide an overview only.  If you need additional detail or class instruction, please talk to an advisor for clarification or attend our monthly classes where we go into detail on each of these subjects discussed. 


Day 1–February 1st (3pm-5pm):  So You Want to Be a Business Owner—This is our kick-off class.  In this class we will introduce you to what it takes to be an entrepreneur, core business fundamentals, legal structures (DBA, LLC, C-Corp, S-Corp).

Day 2–February 8 (3pm-5pm): OK, What Do I Do Now? This is a pivotal class where we will discuss funding alternatives, start-up costs, revenue generation, marketing & business plans.

Day 3–February 15 (3pm-5pm):Hmmm, I Guess Its Time to Write a Business Plan—This is the final class of the Fast Track series.  In this class we will focus on highlighting marketing concepts and explaining key elements in a traditional/lean business plan.  We will review specific formats as well.
