RIVERTON, Wyo. — Central Wyoming College and the University of Wyoming’s College of Business are partnering to support Wyoming’s entrepreneurial ecosystem with the official launch of a new statewide education program called Entrepreneur Essentials.
Entrepreneur Essentials was successfully launched as a pilot program this past fall and was created based on the success of CWC’s Start-Up Intensive (SUI) Program based in Jackson.
SUI graduated 100 Wyoming entrepreneurs in the past six years and generated about 100 jobs at an average annual salary above $40,000. SUI added $4 million in income to Northwest Wyoming’s regional economy.
The new four-week Entrepreneur Essentials program will start on Friday, May 15 and will be taught over two weekend days and one weekday evening per week. The program will be offered entirely online with the possibility of in-person for the final weekend.
“One hundred Wyomingites have graduated from SUI, one of the most successful entrepreneurial education programs in the state,” says Sandy Hessler, SUI instructor. “We are excited to offer this new modified course that still allows for a collaborative, interactive experience for entrepreneurs in cities across Wyoming”.
Due to the current economic environment, this first course will launch at a significant discount. Regularly priced at $995, the cost of the spring 2020 program will be discounted at $584 for in-state participants and $780 for residents of Idaho or other Western states.
“The current economic uncertainty across Wyoming will give birth to many entrepreneurs and challenge existing businesses who need to pivot to survive,” says Lynne McAuliffe, CWC dean of business, technical, health and safety. “We aim to help them do this with solid practical educational content, terrific instruction and a group of peers who are navigating similar waters.”
