There has been a recent explosion of free online courses for entrepreneurs offered by a variety of entities. Over the years, we have found that many of our new start-up and small business clients have a thirst for entrepreneurship education. However, we have also found that many of our clients starting new businesses have a limited amount of time and money to spend on the traditional classroom courses due to employment, family, and the like.
Here are five online classes that small business owners should consider taking from Inc.com.
How To Build a StartUp with Steve Blank
Developing Innovative Ideas For New Companies with James Green, University of Maryland
Introduction to Finance with Gautam Kaul, University of Michigan
Competitive Strategy with Tobia Kretscmer, Universitat Munchen
Design Thinking for Business Innovation with Jeanne Liedtka, University of Virginia
For more online entrepreneurship learning, many educational institutions, such as MIT and Stanford, are currently offering free online courses in a number of disciplines.
