Small Business and Technology Development Centers holding entrepreneurship classes

The Missouri Small Business and Technology Development Centers [SBTDC] will be offering four-week courses about entrepreneurship starting Nov. 13. The Fall 2015 schedule consists of four classes from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Fridays (Nov. 13, Nov. 20, Dec. 4, Dec. 11), and the classes will be held at the Regional Economic Development, Inc., offices at 500 East Walnut St. in Columbia. The course description is as follows:

“We are using the curriculum from’s ‘How to Build a Startup,’ which is written primarily by Steve Blank, to teach students the entrepreneurial mindset that will aid in their success. The appropriate target audience would be enthusiastic individuals who want to learn what is a startup vs. a corporation, how to organize the aspects of a business, and how to develop their ideas into products/services relevant to a market. Upon completion, the students would be prepared for an entrepreneurial workshop, like the Entrepreneurial Workshops beginning in January sponsored by UM System and the SBTDC, where they can practice delivery of their ideas to stakeholders.”

Students can enter the class at any time, and the courses will be held again during the Spring 2016 semester. For more information, please contact Sandra Marin at
