Our Business Skills Course

Ten Week Basic Business Fundamentals.

Business Skill Building

The Basic Business Fundamental course is for people who are interested in exploring entrepreneurship. This course includes 10 modules that walk you through basic business fundamentals including: Market research, building an elevator pitch, learning social media, as well as financial management. Our goal is for our facilitators to provide a business fundamentals toolbox for class members to customize for their own entrepreneurship journey.


By the end of the module, you should have a completed business plan and class members will get the opportunity to share their story in the form of a presentation, video, or summary to a panel of community change makers. Former panelists include experts in marketing, entrepreneurship and business strategy.
