This session includes classes on 9 consecutive Wednesdays. Attendance at all 9 sessions is HIGHLY encouraged.

The Formula 8 combines classroom and online coursework to teach 8 essentials of an entrepreneurial mindset using the business canvas process to inspire and engage participants. We will focus on customer discovery and acquisition for both start-up and existing businesses. Hearing from unlikely yet successful entrepreneurs, participants will learn to evaluate business opportunities from a practical method inspired by the life story of Clifton Taulbert.

This course is a revolutionary learning program designed to inspire and engage participants in the fundamental aspects of an entrepreneurial mindset and the unlimited opportunities it can provide. The overall objective is to empower learners through entrepreneurial thinking and immerse them in entrepreneurial experiences that will enable them to develop entrepreneurial skills. With market testing, you will also be using a canvas tool to test assumptions rather than utilizing traditional business planning.

Class cost is $649 with scholarships available. Application will be reviewed for class and scholarship opportunities.
