ShoreVenture Entrepreneur Training Returns

After five years of successful programming, the ShoreVenture entrepreneurship training program returns for 2016.  Offered by hotDesks, the Eastern Shore’s coworking network, the newly formatted 30-hour program includes even more valuable content and benefits to help entrepreneurs and startup businesses 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.

ShoreVenture is the most rewarding and respected entrepreneur training program on the Eastern Shore.  Often times, entrepreneurs focus primarily on their product or service and ignore the fundamentals of actually starting a successful business.  Having the skills and knowledge to understand the details of your business and how to use best practices to run a profitable and scalable company are critically important.

Organized in a way that maximizes an entrepreneur’s limited time, the program occurs over seven weeks and includes a mixture of in-person and online sessions.  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  Sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings between September 15 and October 25, 2016.  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.

hotDesks is a part of the Eastern Shore Entrepreneurship Center, a private sector nonprofit organization that serves the needs of high-growth, innovative, and scalable startups and businesses.  hotDesks has locations in Cambridge, Easton, Pocomoke, and Salisbury with reciprocity at other coworking spaces and incubators throughout Maryland.
