Aspiring Women Entrepreneurs-Is This Your Time to Start a Business?

Have you been interested in starting a business, but the time hasn’t been right? 

COVID19 has impacted everyone, whether it’s losing a job or re-evaluating your priorities and thinking about a career change.  

SCORE in partnership with the St Catherine University’s Center for Sales Innovation is offering a four-part series for women who are interested in learning about starting a business. 

The series is designed for a cohort of 15 alumnae who will learn together, lean on each other and build a community of aspiring entrepreneurs. 

In between classes, participants will work on their Business Plan and develop their Sales and Marketing strategies. 

The 90 minute on-line sessions will give the confidence to start your business. 

Session 1: Exploring Entrepreneurship-is it right for you
Session 2: Sales Strategies for your company
Session 3: Marketing Strategies, Supplier Diversity and Certifications
Session 4: Selling Your Professional Services Firm
