The WARF UpStart Program for Minority and Women's Entrepreneurship is designed to equip entrepreneurially minded women and minorities in the Madison area with the tools they need to launch or expand any business venture. The several-week curriculum will cover the skills needed to conceive, fund, organize and test a business idea. Sessions will be taught by members of the Small Business Development Center, as well as active professionals with expertise in fields such as accounting, sales and marketing. Participants are part of a cohort of motivated individuals from diverse professional and educational backgrounds with whom they learn and share their own ideas and experiences.
Many campus and community organizations hold events at the Discovery Building. View upcoming events below.
