The Round Rock Chamber is pleased to announce that the 2018 Entrepreneurship Round Rock (ERR) program will be conducted in partnership with Austin SCORE. Their “certified mentors are experienced entrepreneurs, corporate managers, and executives with a diverse set of industries and specialties who volunteer their experience and knowledge to help small business owners and entrepreneurs achieve success.”
The mission of ERR is to provide individuals who are just beginning or considering an entrepreneurial enterprise a supportive and nurturing environment where they can thoroughly evaluate their respective business models.
We base our curriculum on the Business Model Canvas and the Kauffman Foundation’s FastTrac. With the help of SCORE’s expert business mentors, we facilitate small group discussions that are focused on strengthening the business models designed in the class. We couple this high quality curriculum and mentorship with local experts that enhance the material that is being taught. Regardless of where they begin, participants will exit this course well-equipped to take the next step in their entrepreneurial journey.
