Knoxville Entrepreneur Center announces five-session series on starting a business

Application deadline is this Thursday; first session starts January 17.

The Knoxville Entrepreneur Center has announced a new program, but you need to decide this week if you want to apply. The deadline is December 21!

Titled “Starting Your Business 101,” the five-week program includes these topics:

  • Week 1: Know Thy Self, Know Thy Customer;
  • Week 2: Showing Up and Sharing Your Story;
  • Week 3: Building A Sustainable Business;
  • Week 4: Financials and Capital; and
  • Week 5: Legal, Taxes, and Business Building Checklist.

“If you’re a new and/or novice business owner, ‘Starting Your Business 101’ is for you,” the website declares. The program “helps you build your business plan in a flexible community environment. The only real prerequisites are: having a business idea you’re ready, willing, and excited to share and work on; and a willingness to study, shape, and fine-tune that idea in a supportive, collaborative and welcoming environment.”

The program begins January 17 and continues for three hours each week. The fee is $100.
