The Close School is partnering with Argyle Interactive and WeWork to discuss the importance of entrepreneurial thinking and how it leads to success in startups, small businesses, and corporations. Join us March 21 from 6-8pm at WeWork's brand new space at 1900 Market Street for a panel discussion and networking happy hour. 

At the Close School of Entrepreneurship, we believe it's never too late to start something. Our new entrepreneurship program, Starting New Ventures, offers those continuing their education a unique opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship through intensive, experiential learning.

This hybrid course spans 6 weeks, from April 29th - June 3rd (3 Saturdays on campus, remaining sessions online). You will learn:

  • Entrepreneurship through intensive, experiential learning

  • How to raise capital

  • Value proposition development

  • Fundamentals of marketing, logistics, legal, and finance

Joe Callahan, member of the Close School's external advisory board, participated in a TED Talk at Wake Forest University!
