About: Join this hands-on learning experience for businesses just starting out or in their first five years of operation. This workshop builds on each week and targets the top three subjects that can become a primary concern for entrepreneurs. The program shows entrepreneurs how to build a solid foundation and strategize for growth.

Session One: Identifying Your Brand
Building brand loyalty is an essential step for any business. This course explores identifying your business’s brand and defining your target audience.

Session Two: Building Your Digital Presence 
Consumers rely on your online presence to build trust and interact with your business. During this session, we will walk through an audit of your search engine optimization (SEO), digital marketing, social media, and website.

Session Three: Becoming Growth-Minded
Increasing the size and growth of your business is sometimes not an easy solution. This last gathering will examine strategic development, business to business (B2B) marketing, and business growth evaluation.
