New Ignitor Course Starting Oct. 24
Sierra Commons, Nevada County's business ignitor, is presenting a six-week course to help entrepreneurs realize their dreams of launching and growing their business. More than a business plan workshop, the course brings together a group of motivated entrepreneurs, and guides them through all of the steps needed to create a thriving enterprise. The approach is action-based and covers topics including business planning, market analysis, marketing strategies, finance, budgeting, web, business law and more. Course faculty are seasoned professionals who teach weekly classes, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to each topic. Students also meet with mentors for special one-to-one sessions and group discussions.
Building on the success of previous Buinsess Ignitor Courses, the curriculum has been refined and Sierra Commons is providing an additional three months of free membership to top performing graduates. Sierra Commons will continue mentoring and housing these graduates to further increase their business success rate.
Sierra Commons graduates are currently running some of Nevada County’s most exciting new product and service businesses. “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,” states Matt Vanderpol, owner of qatab.com and recent Ignitor graduate. “I heartily recommend the course to anyone who has an idea for a small business but needs more information or an extra push to get him or her started.”
Space is limited to 15 participants.
