Shenandoah University Offers Free Entrepreneurship & Small Business Certificate
August 19 - September 5
Shenandoah University Offers Free Entrepreneurship & Small Business Certificate The Shenandoah University Institute for Entrepreneurship will offer a free, 10-week Entrepreneurship & Small Business Certificate (ESBC) program on Wednesday evenings this fall from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. The program begins Sept. 6 and ends Nov. 8. The program is non-credit-bearing, so admission to Shenandoah University is not required. Partial scholarships may be available for those participants identifying as low-to-moderate income households. Using CO.STARTERS Core as the base curriculum, this cohort-style program equips entrepreneurs of all kinds with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to turn business ideas into action. Participants enter into a facilitator-led, collaborative process with a small and supportive group of like-minded peers. Working together, participants develop and fine-tune their ideas, critically examining every part and determining the next steps through real-time feedback from people in the community using a simplified version of the Business Model Canvas. This approach enables entrepreneurs to rapidly uncover flaws in their concepts and find viable models more quickly. Participants leave the program with a deeper understanding of how to create a sustainable business, articulate their models, and repeat the process with the next great idea. The program will be remote via Zoom, use this link to register. Questions? Contact Montressa L. Washington, Ph.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org.
