If you looking to start or expand a business, but can’t commit to weekly classroom sessions, then e-REAL is for you. e-REAL is the online version of the Rural Entrepreneurship through Action Learning course.

So just what is REAL you ask? Great question! REAL is a unique hands-on approach to assist you, the entrepreneur through planning, owning and operating of your own businesses. You don’t need prior business experience since the course is designed with the beginner in mind. However, if you’ve already gotten started, REAL will provide you with the tools necessary to improve and expand your business.

During the 13 weeks of the course you will cover topics such as self-assessment, market research, competitive analysis, financial feasibility, business plan essentials, legal structures, targeting the customer, taxes and licenses, and computerized financial analysis.
