FastTrac Entrepreneurial Training Programs

FastTrac Entrepreneurial Training Programs offered by WSU Center for Entrepreneurship are 10-week programs that do more than just skim over the top of many subjects. If you’re considering starting a business, you can enroll in the FastTrac New Venture program, which will help you decide if your idea has potential before you quit your job and spend your life savings.

If you’ve already quit your job and invested your life savings, you might be more interested in the Growth Venture course that helps you accelerate business performance.

Both workshops are open to the public, taught by top-notch faculty, and designed to provide practical, actionable advice. Neither of them is necessarily “cheap” (except in comparison to other businesses courses that offer in-depth and individualized training). However, according to Director of Outreach Programming Wendy Veatch, the Center for Entrepreneurship is dedicated to providing programs that are accessible–and for many of us that means they must be affordable.

Scholarships are available that may cover up to half of the course fees. If you’re interested in either of the FastTrac courses, register online as soon as possible. Awards are based on funds available. To apply for the scholarship, list three reasons you need the scholarship on question #9 on the application. For more information, please contact Wendy Veatch at 978-3000.
