Nail It Then Scale It Workshop: Leading Edge Practices for Startups

The Miller Business Resource Center (MBRC) at Salt Lake Community College is hosting a two-session workshop for aspiring entrepreneurs on October 2 and 9, 2012 from 6:00 p.m.- to 9:00 p.m.  The workshop will be geared to those interested in starting a business and will cover venture capitalist and author Paul Ahlstrom’s Nail It Then Scale It (NISI) business model.

The NISI model incorporates leading-edge startup practices and prepares entrepreneurs for greater success.  The training offers the methods and practices contained in the book, Nail It Then Scale It, which helps business owners identify and validate what customers actually want, before spending valuable time and resources.  Participants will also learn how to implement principles of a ‘lean’ startup, using practical tools exclusive to the program.

The workshop will be held on Salt Lake Community College’s Larry H. Miller Campus in the Miller Free Enterprise Center, Auditorium at 9750 South 300 West, in Sandy.  Registration is $99.00 and can be completed at: www.mbrcslcc.com/nailitthenscaleit
