Starting a business requires a certain number of management skills and the mastery of financial and regulatory fundamentals. Getting training in advance will allow you to better concentrate on your business afterwards. Beyond technical skills, the evaluation of the entrepreneurial opportunity that underlies your project is crucial, even when your concept seems clear in your mind.
In order to guide you before launching your business, we offer the future entrepreneur a distance learning course, spread over 3 evenings, which will give you the essential elements for the formalisation of a reliable project with financial organisations and will allow you to gather the necessary tools for the daily management of your business.
Led by entrepreneurship professionals with practical and theoretical experience in business creation, this training focuses on practical exercises, feedback and short exercises to concretely assimilate all the fundamental notions mentioned above.
It is also recommended to the entrepreneur to realise a “discovery meeting” (free of charge) with the House of Entrepreneurship in order to validate the current stage of progress and needs.
For any request:
At the end of the training, each participant will be able to:
understand the reality of being an entrepreneur and confirm their choices to move forward
