The techEDge Entrepreneurship course is now accepting applications. This course will give small business owners one-on-one access to experts that would be difficult to emulate. This 10-week course is intended for entrepreneurs who are in the concept phase, early stage or growth mode. It’s designed to be interactive and fast-moving with current, real-world information.
The curriculum was developed in the City of Chandler’s Innovations Incubator in partnership with the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Each class includes both formal instruction and individual consultations from professionals in their areas of expertise. Topics include; technology readiness, intellectual property, business analysis, investor strategies, market analysis, business process, strategic partnerships, financial management and accounting, capital formation strategies and human resources management.
The techEDge class will be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. every Tuesday from April 10 to June 19 at the Innovations Incubator, 145 S. 79th Street, Chandler. The bi-annual course will be offered again in October 2012.
Class size is limited to 15 people, however a waiting list is being created for those who would like to reserve space in future courses. The cost is $120, and includes course materials and exclusive Web content. In addition, scholarships are available to Innovations tenants.
