The opportunity

“The Entrepreneurial Fellows Class covers all
topics relevant to entrepreneurs, even some
that we may not think about. Learning about
governance profoundly impacted me and my
business. Now I have an advisory board that
guides the business to growth and success.”
-Arnie Burchianti II, Celtic Healthcare, Inc.,
Class of 2007
“The peer interaction in the Fellows
Class is informative and challenging.
My business only had a web page and
I didn’t think it needed more until a
classmate described her company’s social
media plan, which included Facebook and
Twitter. It made me think about my
business’ social media plan and how it
must be updated.”
-Susan Ardisson, bit-x-bit, LLC,
Class of 2013
“What I learned in class was
immediately applicable to my
business. I learned you manage
things like assets or inventory, but
lead people, an important
distinction. I am a more effective
and confident leader of both my
employees and business.”
-Greg Gold, Miller's Ace Hardware,
Class of 2013
