I'm trying to put together a course on Entrepreneurship that I will deliver in my local community. The goal of the course is to try to help explain the topics that are roadblocks for people who have great ideas, but are uncertain as how they should proceed. This is going to be an in person course, we can control the size of the room, but I would guess it would be more in the 20-50 person range. The course is going to be free, and the real hope from it all is that we get just one person to turn their idea into a business. I've talked casually with some local people about what they need, and it feels vague. As such, I wanted to get a broader mix of input so we can create something that really adds value. While I don't want to skew it too much with my thoughts (IE feel free to go anywhere with input) here's what I generally had in mind: 4 sessions of around 1hr each. Business entities and taxation (from a high level, annual view, things like LLC vs S Corp, Schedule C etc) Business cash flow, expenses, payroll, bookkeeping, retirement accounts Marketing: brand development, social media and building a blog Case study: bootstrapping a $100 business that brings the above together I'd be keen to hear input on this - there's a lot of ground to cover in 4hrs, and maybe this isn't the best approach. Also, in terms of implementation, would it be possible to teach this in a 4hr course that back-to-back? I ask this as I wonder if we need to allocate time to homework assignments or to dedicate a block of time to each class to circle back to topics in some way. Thoughts appreciated. If logging in here is to cumbersome, I'd gladly accept a message to firstname.lastname@example.org or in whatever social media forum you find most convenient.
