Anyone with a business idea is invited to participate in CU Launch, a free business model workshop hosted by the Concordia University School of Business Administration. The university will host two different kick-off events in the Greater Milwaukee area: Tuesday, February 16th at the Waukesha Center and Thursday, February 18th at the Mequon Center (on the main campus).
Using the “Lean Startup” process, budding entrepreneurs will learn how to take their business idea from startup through the launch process. CU Launch is a free nine-month program that will conclude with a competition for $1,000 in seed funds sponsored by Concordia University. Dan Sem, dean of the School of Business and an experienced entrepreneur, will lead the process with the help of other entrepreneurs and business coaches in the area.
At the kick-off workshop, participants will learn about the business model canvas and apply it to their own ideas. Pizza and beverages will be provided. Free legal startup advice, business mentoring and networking opportunities will be available throughout the nine-month process.
