Build Institute Entrepreneur Education

The Build Entrepreneur Education Program is a nine-week basic business startup course for early-stage entrepreneurs. We assist you in identifying and honing strengths and developing meaningful connections with like-minded individuals and other Entrepreneur Support Organizations.

Classes are led by trained facilitators and cover the basics of starting a business—from establishing an entity to financial literacy, market research to cash flow, loan types to cost-benefit analyses, and more. We bring in Subject matter experts such as lawyers, accountants, bankers, marketing professionals, and more, to cover the different business topics and aid with questions.

Each class has a minimum of 10 participants who meet in person with an option to participate via zoom once a week for three hours throughout the nine weeks. This program is designed for early-stage and growing entrepreneurs who are ready to start, grow or restart their businesses. The program fee is $275, which includes your workbook, and course material.
