|To be determined Later||Workshop||Finance|| An Entrepreneur is almost always "resource constrained," and the resource that entrepreneurs always worry about is money. Although raising money is never easy, it is not necessarily as difficult as people think. Entrepreneurs need to understand the sources of funding for entrepreneurial ventures and the rules by which these sources operate.
The focus will be on the strategy as well as the tactics involved in negotiating and building effective, long-term relationships with investors, bankers etc, in extremely difficult funding environments.

|Christ the King||Workshop||Leadership & Operations|| It's all about the people. Most ventures that fail do so because of people issues, not technology, market, or funding issues. This is where leadership comes in.
For many entrepreneurs, the most pressing questions (aside from those about financing) are about how to locate and recruit talented people, how to manage and keep them, and how to build a high-growth, long-term, sustainable firm. This workshop will address these questions and provide the participants with a number of critical concepts and competencies that will be useful to them in both the short and long term.
There are different leadership styles that work in different situations. Understanding your personal leadership strengths and weaknesses is important in determining whether you can be effective in a given situation.
The focus will be to help the participants make a self-assessment of their leadership capabilities.

|TANOEhub||Workshop||Marketing / PR /Sales|| If entrepreneurs don't have customers, they don't have a business. For whom do they create value? Will these people pay for that value, or can they monetize the value created? These are the core questions for marketing an entrepreneurial venture
This workshop will introduce key marketing concepts, methods, and strategic issues relevant for start-up and early-stage entrepreneurs. In this course, the major questions can be gathered into two conceptual areas: (1) What am I selling? How am I selling it? And to whom am I selling it? (2) How do I best leverage my limited marketing recourses?
This workshop will cover the process of identifying and quantifying market opportunities.
