The curriculum is organized and presented in two phases. The first phase is designed to cultivate an entrepreneurial mind-set, encourage participants to refine their alertness to viable business opportunities and help participants familiarize themselves with processes that will help them capitalize on opportunities. At the end of phase one, participants are encouraged to vet their business ideas with interns and others in their personal network and start to conceptualize how they might formalize a business plan.
Those participants that are able to conceptualize viable business opportunities are encouraged to participate in phase two of the training.

These lessons assist entrepreneurs in the formal creation and presentation of their business plan.
