I really LOVE being part of the FastTrac New Venture program! I help Coach entrepreneurs who are working on their business plans as part of the team at the Kauffman Foundation (internationally known Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership http://www.kauffman.org/).
The FastTrac NewVenture program at the Kauffman Foundation is a 10 week, hands on course for entrepreneurs. Each week, we have a guest speaker (entrepreneur) for the first hour, large group discussion/exercises for an hour and an hour of small group sessions (plus a half hour networking while we enjoy dinner). There are FastTrac programs offered nationwide (and internationally) by various providers and in various formats. There are several FastTrac programs available including:
- FastTrac New Venture
- FastTrac Growth Venture
- FastTrac Tech Venture
- First Step FastTrac
- Other seminars and courses too
