The purpose of this class is to provide an opportunity to explore options for generating self-employment, and to maximize their chances for success. The focus of the class will be on creating small, local, profit or non-profit enterprises, although the principles learned are also applicable for growing larger businesses. There are three primary means through which we will pursue this purpose:
· Every class will include an interview with an environmentally and socially responsible entrepreneur, so students can be exposed to and learn from a variety of business models and “real life” experiences.
· Each class will also include instruction on the skills required to create an enterprise, including strategic planning, marketing and basic accounting.
· Students will be responsible for generating, by themselves or with a team, a business plan for a local enterprise in an area of interest.
We will also discuss the ecological, economic and social merits of creating self-reliant local economies, and explore both conventional and alternative business structures. $250. Info: (707) 758-0171
