UW to bring Entrepreneur Essentials Startup Intensive online for second session

Entrepreneur Essentials (e2) is a partnership between Central Wyoming College, Silicon Couloir (a Wyoming nonprofit that provides resources to entrepreneurs) and UW to offer a virtual version of the successful Startup Intensive. Last fall 12 entrepreneurs from across Wyoming participated in the inaugural session.

Dates: May 15 – June 10
Weekends: May 15-17; June 12-14
Wednesday Evenings: May 20, May 27, June 3, June 10

Sandy Hessler and Liza Millet have taught 100+ Wyoming entrepreneurs over the last six years.  Over 80% of those graduates are still operational after 3 years. 20% of those graduates have raised significant private investment capital. Graduates have created over 100 jobs at an average annual salary of $40,000. SUI has added $4,000,000 of incremental income to Wyoming’s northwest regional economy.

For entrepreneurs considering Entrepreneur Essentials, the virtual version is discounted to $584 compared to the traditional e2 program’s $995 cost. Participants can receive 4 CWC credits towards a Bachelor of Applied Science. Wyoming Workforce Training grants (information available at this link http://wyomingworkforce.org/businesses/wdtf/, which would reduce the cost to $0, may be available to those that qualify and for applications received by April 14.
