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, May 18th - Tuesday, July 6th. We will also offer "Rapid Rewinds" of course material on Mondays at noon. 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. You will also receive a video link to the virtual meetings after they take place. The course is free for Louisiana residents (if you are not a Louisiana resident, please contact Jessica at Jessica@cohab.org before enrolling). 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 with the State of Louisiana (a free process we will help you with).
