OEN Startup Series

10 weeks of nuts-and-bolts training for early-stage entrepreneurs

Do Excel spreadsheets make your heart skip a beat? Are you embarrassed to admit that you’re not sure what a hashtag is?

No entrepreneur can be expected to know it all. Our 10-week Startup Series covers the nuts and bolts of the areas in which you may lack expertise, including business structure, financial management, sales & marketing strategies, fundraising, and more.

If you’re an entrepreneur who has launched a business that is pre-revenue or bringing in less than $250,000 annually, this workshop series is for you!

In addition to formal instruction in weekly classes, each participant in OEN’s Startup Series will have access to a network of mentors covering each of the session topics below. Our mentors have agreed to provide guidance during the full 10 weeks of this program. Have a burning funding or accounting problem? No need to wait until week 7, just email one of our mentors. A full mentor list will be provided on the first day of class. Mentors/instructors will have expertise in:

  • Welcome & Goal Setting
  • Your Business Structure Checklist
  • Marketing Strategy
  • Building a Sales Strategy + Networking
  • Developing a Healthy Financial Structure
  • Planning Spatial Needs in the Short + Long Term & 3rd Party Contracts
  • Lean Principles + Tools for Your Business
  • Funding Your Company
  • Hiring and Firing a Team + Digital Marketing
  • Class Presentations & Wrap Up Session
