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.

2024 Fall Cohort applications will be available late August/early September 2024.
