Make Startups – “The Entrepreneurial Lifestyle” – FREE Pre-course teaser class.

August 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


About Make Startups

Have a business idea? Maybe you have an old business that needs revamping? Need advice and guidance on getting it started? Then have we got a program for you!

The Make Startups Entrepreneurship Certificate is a 12-week entrepreneurship practicum, followed by 6 months of mentoring. It provides education and mentoring on your business idea, unlike most “entrepreneurship classes” in higher education.  It is heavily based on the teachings of Steve Blank (an entrepreneur turned professor from Stanford) and Eric Ries (the author of Lean Startup).

The program runs the gamut from creating a strong “Why” for your entrepreneurship journey, to utilizing lean startup principles for validating your customer, to building your financial model, to incorporating structure and intellectual property.

Who Should Attend?

The Make Startups Entrepreneurship Certificate is for anyone who is ready to get started with and test their business idea or anyone who wants to refresh or update an old business. You don’t need a ton of money in the bank to get going, but it will take commitment to the program.

Entrepreneurs or aspiring entrepreneurs interested in learning about The Make Startups Entrepreneurship should plan to attend an Info Session on 08/28/2021. This free session will contain an overview and details of the full program schedule. After attending, you will have a better idea if you want to commit to the full program.

How Much Does it Cost?
