Start Up Institute returns to Jackson

Jul 24, 2014 - From staff reports

Silicon Couloir and Central Wyoming College have partnered to bring the third session of the Start Up Institute to Jackson in the fall.

The Start Up Institute is an intensive entrepreneurship program designed to provide participants with proven tools, frameworks and skills that companies use to launch successful business ideas. It's a hands-on, experiential and practical course focused on helping individuals work on and launch their business ideas.

This program provides a unique opportunity for anyone starting a new business venture or building on an existing business to create a lasting foundation for success.

"After two very successful programs, Silicon Couloir and Central Wyoming College have decided to host this program twice a year for the foreseeable future," said Silicon Couloir co-founder and Start Up Institute program director Liza Millet. "We couldn't be more excited to help as many entrepreneurs as we can take their ideas to the next level."

From Oct. 7 through Dec. 11, 15 participants will dedicate three days a week to class time in addition to working through the ideas after class hours. The class will end with participants presenting their business to a panel of experienced advisers. Once the class time program has concluded, participants will be given 10 hours of follow-up consulting time with a panel of experts to use as they move forward.

Program instructor Sandy Schultz Hessler has taught at Harvard, Tufts University and U. Miami Ohio and has been an entrepreneur and marketing professional.

Enrollment is limited, and 20 college credits are available from CWC. Applications are welcome and due Aug. 1. Financial assistance may be available to those who qualify.
