About This Class

This class isn't for hedge fund managers, capital investors, or bankers. This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to start a business.

Are you ready to get started? Do you have a business idea, and want to start with the basics? In this course, we will focus on the first steps any business venture: Startup. We will use the real-world experiences of the award-winning instructor and university professor Dr. Jason Allen. But don't be worried - Dr. Allen is best known around campus for keeping things simple, accessible, and useful.

Dr. Allen is the founder of a number of successful businesses, and is a top-rated Udemy instructor. In 2017 Star Tribune Business featured him as a "Mover and a Shaker," and he is recognized by the Grammy Foundation for his music education classes. 

While a lot of business courses focus on getting rich quick, this is a course for those interested in starting and building a long-term business with a firm foundation. You won't find "get rich quick" schemes here - everything we will learn in this class is practical, useable steps to start a business that you will be able to hand down to your grandchildren. 

This is the third part of a multiple-course series. 

In this course, we will focus the entire course on writing a business plan. This can be a daunting and intimidating task if you've never done it before. Business plans have a formula to them, and there are expected things that get said (and supported) in each section. As we go through this class, we will work on the full plan and outline everything that you should be putting in to it.

By the end of this course, if you follow along you will have a finished business plan ready to send around to potential investors, banks, grant foundations, and more.
