Introducing StartUP Virtual
The newest addition to The Women’s Entrepreneurship Center’s StartUP Programs
The University of Scranton Kania School of Management presents StartUP Virtual: a collaborative effort between the Women’s Entrepreneurship Center (WEC) and Small Business Development Center (SBDC). StartUP Virtual is the newest program addition – A completely virtual version of their popular StartUP Series.
StartUP Virtual is a six-week, self-learning certificate program that gives women interested in entrepreneurship the step-by-step guidance they need to develop successful small businesses with the flexibility of a virtual learning series to be completed on their own schedule. Through the self-paced, online modules participants will learn business startup basics, legal and insurance considerations, business plan development, marketing and social media essentials, accounting and budget skills, and financing options.
The StartUP programs are designed for women with lower incomes, those in transition or those trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. StartUP Virtual was developed and produced through a grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission.
Housed in the Kania School of Management, The University of Scranton Women’s Entrepreneurship Center (WEC) is a program of the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). WEC student interns and SBDC staff offer business start-up information, guidance, and encouragement.
