This course is designed to help entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs in North Louisiana get started on their path to starting their businesses. This course will cover the basics of starting and running a business. In addition to online work, we will meet virtually once per week on Tuesday evenings at 6pm from Tuesday, February 2nd - Tuesday, March 23rd. Students may begin to work on their coursework as soon as they register, and you will receive a link to the online meetings before each session begins. The course is free for Louisiana residents. We ask that all participants commit to completing at least 80% of the course by signing a completion record and that all students who are eligible apply to be Small Emerging Business Development certified (a free process we will help you with).
