Design Your Business is an accessible, online program that offers an orientation class, 6 virtual sessions offered twice a week for 2 hour sessions, and a one-on-one coaching session.

Over the course of 4 weeks you will learn more about your personal and enterprise visions, build a business model canvas, speak directly to stakeholders in your industry, and present a short pitch of your business idea.

Design Your Business is a great fit if you are exploring your business idea and need guidance honing your concept into a road map for next steps.

This program is designed to foster collaboration in the online classroom, and facilitates the exploration of your idea within a community of aspiring entrepreneurs.

If this sounds like a good fit for your business concept or existing business, join us for our next cohort! Participants should plan to attend every session and can expect to contribute about 3-6 hrs per week between classes for action work completed at home.
