What Our Entrepreneurs are Saying
Susan M. Freeman
“During my experience in the 10-week course, I was taught the beauty of networking, time management and the basis of operating a business. One particularly great lesson for me was figuring out my break-even point and making a profit.”
"The tools that you get out of the [LAUNCH CHA] program for the money you spend to get the information you do is unheard of"
"Before enrolling in the Business Entrepreneurship Academy, I had no prior knowledge of entrepreneurship or business. During the 10 week course, I learned essential information about organizing and operating a business."
