If you are a new business owner or someone thinking of an entrepreneurial path, AI3 is for you. Now, more than ever, it is critical to explore the necessary skills, tools and resources needed to succeed in starting and operating a business. These workshops have been updated to reflect the unique challenges of launching and running a business in an economy affected by COVID-19.

Each weekly workshop will be delivered online, featuring two hours of live, real-time instruction. Instructors will be available for support outside of structured class time via email and phone. You'll explore the necessary skills, tools, and resources to succeed in starting and operating a business.

This workshop series covers important skills in areas such as:
