Get Ignited @ Sierra Commons
Ignitor 5.0 – Classes start March 6, 2013
This Spring, Sierra Commons will present a six-week course to help entrepreneurs realize their dream of launching (or growing) a business.
More than a business plan workshop, the course brings together a group of motivated entrepreneurs and provides them with a solid business foundation to build their success on.
The approach is action-based and covers topics including business planning, market analysis, marketing strategies, finance, budgeting, web, business law and more. Seasoned professionals teach the weekly classes, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to each topic. Students also meet weekly with mentors for special one-to-one sessions.
Many students begin the course with working knowledge of some aspects of business. Upon completion, each student has a solid foundation – covering all aspects - of owning and operating a small business.
Bring us your business passion – we'll help you ignite it.
I've wanted to start my own business for some time now and the classes provided me both the impetus I needed to move forward and a foundational knowledge of business structure, financials, and sales/marketing. I heartily recommend the course to anyone who has an idea for a small business.
The class provided all the tools needed to take a business from an idea to a reality, in six weeks. Amazing.
