What's First?

Let’s get to know one another. We have classes like “The Building Blocks for Starting a Business” that give you the facts on the very first steps in the venture creation process. After that, you can sign up for more incredible classes or sign up to meet one-on-one with a business counselor to talk about the next steps specific to you and your business idea. We meet you where you are and we’re here to listen and advise.
