About this Event

The Greater Washington Urban League's Entrepreneurship Center is starting it's second cohort of the Fall 2019 Entrepreneurship Training Program on October 28th . This 8-week course, that runs through December 16th, focuses on developing the entrepreneur while helping you find a “good place” to start a business. A good place considers your business idea, resources available, and where you want to go with the business. Participants will learn a proactive, self-starting approach to entrepreneurship that focuses on future-oriented, persistent behavior and developing “an entrepreneurial mindset.” Our ultimate goal is to help entrepreneurs find a sustainable pathway that leads to reaching their ultimate business aspirations.

Participants will learn how to differentiate themselves from other businesses, as well as how to anticipate problems, overcome setbacks and foster better planning skills for opportunities and obstacles. Our Entrepreneurship Training Program has helped dozens of entrepreneurs with limited business experience succeed using this approach.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Develop functional skill sets to see and act entrepreneurial
  • Develop and define a business plan
  • Set attainable business goals
  • Implement management systems
  • Understand the different types of business models
  • Identify opportunities based on real customer needs
  • Create a company strategy
  • Promote the business
  • Develop marketing campaigns
  • Attract potential customers

Cost: $125 per participant ($25 deposit required)
