The Cisco Entrepreneur Institute's Starting a Business Course is specifically designed to empower individuals who want to start a small to medium-sized business. Successful business ownership requires not only choosing the right type of business but an understanding of legal requirements, accounting, management, and marketing. A business plan pulls all these components together. Most people fail in business because they make avoidable mistakes. This course teaches what those mistakes are and how to avoid them.
The course will consist of leader-led instruction, small group work, on-line learning, and an individual project. Group exercises, case studies, and discussion forums help participants apply knowledge learned to real-life situations.
