Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, , , , ,

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs is now offering online entrepreneurship classes.

The school’s College of Business has launched its Practical Entrepreneurship Program, a non-credit track program that includes 21 courses on subjects ranging from market evaluation to raising capital, legal structures for new businesses, writing a business plan and setting up an office.

Each course costs $29, or students can purchase the whole suite of courses for $299.

“This program will further our vision of building successful futures for our stakeholders who are interested in starting their own businesses,” College of Business Dean Venkat Reddy said.

The program was developed in partnership with Business StartUp Institute, Colorado Springs. The curriculum was designed and will be presented by Tom Duening, El Pomar chair of business and entrepreneurship and director of the Center for Entrepreneurship.

“We wanted to make this non-credit program available at a reasonable price so that beginning entrepreneurs could beat the learning curve and succeed with their first startup business,” Duening said. “I share my experiences and what I’ve learned through years of research and teaching.”
