Being an entrepreneur is both a choice and lifestyle. Entrepreneurs live to serve their identified unmet need with passion and purpose. The mechanics and disciplines needed to develop a business that can even survive, much less thrive, require significant learning. The Kauffman FastTrac® program is designed for just this learning.
We will only meet four times or so on Saturday mornings on Zoom to instruct you and facilitate the process. The real work is done between sessions, with the support of a mentor, as you wrestle important questions to the ground to arrive at the best and most viable option(s) for your business. We will be here to support you all along the way, but count on the work of your two hands, the steel of your own mind, and the significant investment of your personal time and effort. It's your dream. It's your business!
Here are the anticipated dates for the Saturday meetings on Zoom. Attendance is expected.
There may also be a session before these to introduce you to some of the software used to monitor progress and to learn how to use FastTrac. You will work on your time and schedule and will meet with your mentor(s) at times and for durations that fit your need and lifestyle.
Dr. David Bryant, Ph.D, Director of Benedictine College’s Cray Center for Entrepreneurial Services, will be the primary professor sharing knowledge and communicating expectations to entrepreneurs.
Below is a general schedule, with specific topics to be covered and due dates for completion of related work. A detailed program schedule and syllabus will be sent to entrepreneurs once they are accepted into the Spark Tank program.
