Start-Up Academy

Welcome to the Start-Up Academy!
We are excited to have you here and look forward to supporting your start-up journey!

Simply fill out this form and we'll get you access to the free Start-Up Academy!

This free community resource is designed to introduce you to the start-up process and walk you through the steps, terminology and templates of starting a business.

The Start-Up Academy will cover seven different modules of the startup process: Assess Yourself, Assess Your Idea, Business Plan, Legal, Financing, Accounting and Marketing.

Each module has an audio component as well as resources such as templates, guides and examples. We also encourage participants to schedule a one-on-one confidential consultation after each module to answer any questions and facilitate connections to additional community resources. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING MORE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS IDEA!
