About The Program
Class Starts: May 15, 2020
Class Time: 11:00 PM Eastern (Unless otherwise noted)
Every entrepreneur or member of a startup business has questions, and is desperate to learn everything they need to do to be successful.
Starting a business is a huge risk. You are foregoing the security that often comes with working for a company.
Each day you need to make transactions to ensure you have an income (either through selling products or services, or fundraising).
And you need to manage all the aspects of a business or organization. You are not just working on a project, but keeping track of bills, invoices, taxes, employee relations (if you have employees), healthcare, and much more.
In this course, "The Entrepreneur and Startup Discussion," Catoctin College will provide a forum for entrepreneurs, members of startups, and small business owners, to come together to gain insights that will lead to better productivity and business success.
Marketing expert Michael Hackmer leads a weekly discussion on a wide variety of topics, and organizes speakers with expertise in different phases of business operations. These can exclude experts on topics in the areas of accounting, legal, staffing, fundraising, business development, marketing and more. In addition to an opening lesson and guest expert speakers, there will be a group discussion, as well as group Q&A session that is designed to help everyone learn. These discussions and group questions also can help direct programming for the next event.
