Thank you for submitting your application for our Spring 2023 Entrepreneur Workshop!

What’s next?

  1. Interest Meetings:  We will reach out to schedule an interest meeting. The meetings are informal and designed to help you get to know us a little more and make sure our program is a good fit for you. We’ll go over expectations, dates, and answer your questions. We’re also eager to learn more about you and your business idea or existing business. The meetings will be conducted virtually via Zoom, Google Meet, or in person at the CIC office starting on  Monday, December 5, 2022, until Tuesday, January 31, 2023.
  2. Survey:  When we schedule your interest meeting, we’ll send you a link asking you to complete a pre-workshop interest meeting survey. We use this data to better understand where you are with your business or business idea and the areas we can help you the most.
  3. Notification:  We will notify all applicants about admission into our workshop on Friday, February 3, 2023. We often receive more applications than spots in our program. If we are unable to offer you an opportunity to participate, we will have a waitlist in case any spots open before the workshop begins.
  4. Enrollment and Orientation:  If you are offered a spot in our workshop, then you must confirm your participation by returning your signed acceptance letter by Friday, February 10, 2023, and schedule an orientation session between the dates of Tuesday, February 7, 2023, and Thursday, February 23, 2023. Orientation sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm in person.
  5. Workshop Begins:  The workshop will begin Tuesday, February 28, 2023, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm and continue every Tuesday evening until Tuesday, June 13, 2023. It is expected that you attend all 16 weeks as a requirement to complete the program. 

Thank you again for applying! If you have any questions, please let us know!
