ShoreVen­ture En­tre­pre­neur Train­ing Re­turns

Dorchester Star - - Regional -

CAM­BRIDGE — Af­ter five years of suc­cess, the ShoreVen­ture en­trepreneur­ship train­ing pro­gram comes to the Eastern Shore In­no­va­tion Cen­ter (ESIC) for 2016.

Of­fered by hotDesks, a co-work­ing space part­ner with ESIC, the newly for­mat­ted 30-hour pro­gram in­cludes even more valu­able con­tent and ben­e­fits to help en­trepreneurs and startup busi­nesses ac­cel­er­ate the growth of their busi­ness and achieve suc­cess. An­other new fea­ture is the se­lec­tion of one par­tic­i­pat­ing en­tre­pre­neur re­ceiv­ing an award val­ued at $5,000 in sup­port of their startup busi­ness.

Ac­cord­ing to an ESIC press re­lease, ShoreVen­ture is the most re­ward­ing and re­spected en­tre­pre­neur train­ing pro­gram on the Eastern Shore. Of­ten, en­trepreneurs fo­cus on the prod­uct or ser­vice that in­spired their busi­ness; but, ig­nore the fun­da­men­tals of run­ning a suc­cess­ful busi­ness, ac­cord­ing to the ESIC.

ShoreVen­ture reme­dies that gap, pro­vid­ing the skills and knowl­edge to un­der­stand the de­tails of your busi­ness and how to use “best prac­tices” to run a prof­itable and scal­able com­pany, ac­cord­ing to the ESIC.

Or­ga­nized in a way that max­i­mizes an en­tre­pre­neur’s lim­ited time, the pro­gram makes use of on­line ses­sions, re­quir­ing only three face-to-face meet­ings over a seven-week pe­riod. In ad­di­tion to what you learn, qual­i­fy­ing en­trepreneurs ben­e­fit from the op­por­tu­nity to con­nect with a di­verse group of fel­low en­trepreneurs as well as men­tors, coaches, and in­vestors from through­out the Eastern Shore re­gion and the State of Mary­land.

Com­plete de­tails and regis­tra­tion for the ShoreVen­ture pro­gram are avail­able at ShoreVen­ Ses­sions are on Tues­day and Thurs­day evenings be­tween Sept. 15 and Oct. 25. The course fee is $350. In the fi­nal ses­sion, par­tic­i­pants will give oral pre­sen­ta­tions to a panel of in­vestors in ex­change for feed­back and anal­y­sis of their busi­ness. One par­tic­i­pat­ing en­tre­pre­neur or busi­ness will be se­lected to re­ceive an award val­ued at $5,000.
