Putting entrepreneurs on the FastTrac
Kauffman FastTrac™ is a practical, hands-on business development program designed to help entrepreneurs hone the skills needed to create, manage and grow a successful business. FastTrac™ participants don't just learn about business, they live it. They work on their own business ideas or ventures throughout the course - moving their ventures to reality or new levels of growth. FastTrac™ is a framework for entrepreneurs helping entrepreneurs.
Experienced business counselors complement a course instructor by facilitating small-group and individual learning, as well as providing advice on class assignments. Guest entrepreneurs illustrate business concepts and share their real-life business experiences. FastTrac™ programs include:
