Taking the Leap: Week 1
Starting a business without any guidance can be daunting. Why leap without having the tools to soar? Have an idea for a product or service, but don't know where to start? Here is your first step!
Taking the Leap is an interactive 4-week cohort-based class.
Each class is 2 hours long. The overall theme of the curriculum is self-empowerment and accountability of each individual. The participants have activities that help them to determine their business model with the objective of forming viable businesses within the 4 week timeframe. Often, in addition to homework activities, classroom activities are supplemented by one-on-one SBDC counseling to address individual learning needs.
Space is extremely limited and we will only be able to host about 20 people.
