Experienced entrepreneurs and startup mentors that have already created their own successful businesses will lead an intensive 10-week training course. The mentors will guide participants through the process of creating business plans to bring new, patentable inventions and technologies to market. The program culminates with an investor pitch contest in front of real-world investor judges. Training is provided at no cost to eligible participants.
“Entrepreneurs play a vital role in economic development and new job creation” states Edward Peachey, President & CEO of WorkNet Pinellas and Tampa Bay WorkForce Alliance. “Hopefully the skills gained during the program will empower participants to form their own startup company here in the Tampa Bay area.”
