Good business sense involves recognizing a valuable opportunity when it arises, so no aspiring entrepreneur should miss out on Kettering University’s free start-up class this fall. Called Orbit, the nine-session program teaches the skills required to start or grow a successful technology-focused business.
Kettering University will offer a $700 course for free for individuals interested in starting or growing a tech company in Michigan. The course begins April 4 and runs five consecutive Wednesday evenings until early May.
Kettering University still has plenty of automotive heritage, and boy, does it have a lot of other cool research going, as I learned Friday morning on the final tour stop of the Great Lakes IT Report Fall Tech Tour for 2011.
FastTrac TechVenture, a training program that shows entrepreneurs and small business owners how to start or revamp a technology business, will be provided free in Flint in July and August.
