Start-Up Circle

View the Start-Up Circle Business Directory to see previous participants in the program.

The Start-Up Circle is a free 9-session business and project planning course designed for aspiring and newly established entrepreneurs.

Classes are taught by local experts and cover the basics of starting or bolstering an independent business – from licensing to financial literacy, market research to cash flow and more. Participants leave the class with a completed business plan, a cohort of entrepreneurs in the Bradenton area, sources of small business capital, and the knowledge and confidence to take their ideas to the next level.

The Spring 2023 Cohort will meet Wednesdays, February 8 – April 5, 2023 at the Manatee Chamber of Commerce in Downtown Bradenton.

Interest Forms for the 2023 Spring Cohort will be available January 9 – 27, 2023.

Interested entrepreneurs must complete the Interest Form by January 27, 2023 in order to be considered for the Spring 2023 cohort. The completion of the Interest Form does not guarantee a spot in the cohort.
