You may want to check out Step-Up Venture University. They are trying to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams — and entrepreneurs create jobs for others…
Here's an excerpt of an article from the September 14, 2010 Boston Herald:
Step-Up Venture University is a nonprofit organization that offers courses in which entrepreneurs-to-be gain hands-on experience in entrepreneurial basics. Step-Up Venture University founder Henry Shterenberg, an adjunct professor at Bentley University, created the school to help entrepreneurs avoid the same kinds of mistakes he once made.
"There's a myth that it takes a lot of money to start a business," Shterenberg said, "but due to technology, starting a business now can cost next to nothing."
The school offers courses to people who are unemployed, older than 55 and even in high school. The courses are designed to empower students and adults to go after their entrepreneurial dreams. All courses are taught by successful entrepreneurs.
