The Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP) offered by the Wisconsin Small Business Development Center at UW-Green Bay provides the tools you need for business idea testing and business model improvement.
Through instruction, guest speakers and coaching, the course serves those who are considering starting a business, owners of existing businesses struggling to get a handle on all the details, and those with successful companies that they want to grow.
ETP is an eight-week course that offers an easy to follow step-by-step process based on the lean startup framework that shows you how to
• Answer the question – “Will people buy my product or service?”
• Appeal to customers
• Quickly develop an investment-ready business plan
• Use time and money in smarter ways
