Have you started your business but are unsure if your business is set up correctly? Looking to deepen your understanding of business ownership and apply new ideas to a business you’ve owned for years? If this sounds like you, the Kauffman FastTrac® Business Owners Series may be a great fit. Over a 10-week period, our series of classes will provide you direction in determining your market, identifying your profit margins, and confirming what you need to grow your business. 

What do past graduates think about the Program? Last fall, Hannah Northup, owner of NorthupHR, graduated from our Kauffman Series and she expressed that she most enjoyed the opportunity to build relationships with small business owners. “I wish I had come to SOURCE RW and taken the Kauffman class so much sooner. Even if you're not ready to start your business, it is important to learn about the start-up process and do your market research early on," Hannah said.

A key outcome of this program is a researched, developed, and written Business Plan that articulates your business concept. This process will help you reduce the normal risks of start-up and increase your chances of success by replacing guesses with facts. 

Weekly sessions include group discussions, coaching sessions, and networking opportunities with one another, staff and guest speakers. During the final week of the series, participants participate in a Pitch Fest. Our most recent class competed for $2,000 start-up capital award. Out of the Fall 2017 class, Hannah tied for first place along with Carlotta Stepp. Pitch Fest gives Kauffman class participants the valuable opportunity to practice and hone their business pitches before approaching potential investors. 

There are still a few seats left for the next round of the Kauffman FastTrac Business Owners Series! Classes begin on April 26th and will take place at the SOURCE RW office (2230 W. Michigan St.) Thursdays from 6pm-9pm. Thanks to the generous support of our JPMorgan Charitable Trust Grant, SOURCE RW is able to once again offer this valuable 10 week series at only $149. A significant discount from traditional $500 enrollment fee.
