Business BootCamp Series- An entrepreneurial opportunity in learning
Our 4-week Business BootCamp™ training program was created to teach you how to start, develop, market, finance, and manage your business while avoiding common mistakes and pitfalls. You will learn from an experienced professional who has started, owned and managed businesses, and is skilled in the key areas of finance, business lending, operations, and marketing. This ensures that you receive practical instruction that is relevant and immediately applicable in the real world.

What you'll learn
There are some general business practices that have been proven to be effective. Our program incorporates this knowledge, providing you with the basic training you will need to get started, operate and maintain your business efficiently.

Business BootCamp™ Class Series
The program core consists of four 2 1/2-hour workshops meeting once a week for only 4 weeks. Business Consulting and Technical Assistance services are included extending this program to a full 6 months. We include this as we understand that as you build your business, you may need additional assistance and may wish to meet with your instructor/consultant individually outside of class. These services are offered at no additional fee for 6 months from the start of class. The fee for the full 6-month program (which includes the 4-class sessions, 6 consulting and technical assistance sessions) is $395.00.

Upon completion of the program, you will have a good start of a business plan that will aid in the implementation of your business / professional service. You will also be instructed in areas that are not usually included in a business plan but is knowledge you will need to operate your business giving you a stronger chance of success. 

In the event you missed a class, you must complete the class within 2 months of the missed date. You will be allowed to repeat any of the workshops within two months after completion of the course (within the 6 months) at no additional costs to you—with your instructor's prior approval. If you wish to repeat any classes two months after you have completed the series but within the 6-month period of the program, a $75 per class fee will be charged per class.

If you are not interested in taking the whole series, each class is available at a rate of $145 per class.
