Business Basics Course

Ready to launch or grow your micro-business?

Ready to launch or grow your micro-business? In this eight-week course, you will meet once per week for three hours with peers and business coaches to learn how to take steps towards making your business dreams a reality. We will cover the basics of business marketing, sales, financial management, and operations. You will work with a community of entrepreneurs to refine your business plan and answer tough questions like “will this idea really make money?” and “how will your product or service make customers lives better?”

The course will culminate in a community graduation event and certificate presentation to celebrate all that you have accomplished. After graduation, you will have access to all specialized services at NEWSED, including loans, extended business courses, incubators, coaching, and more.
