Entrepreneurial education and development company Knowledge Institute has launched a new elearning program for aspiring entrepreneurs using Brainshark’s Web-based platform and services.

Knowledge Institute’s “10 Steps to Venture Success Certificate Course” provides participants with an interactive, step-by-step framework for developing the business skills and support network they need to start a business.

With tens of thousands of troops continuing to return from overseas deployments, the course is a great resource for the increasing number of veterans turning to self-employment in today’s tough job market. But you don’t have to be a veteran to benefit from the course.

The 10-Step Course consists of 10 self-paced modules – covering entrepreneurial education topics including self-assessment of business aptitude, business concept validation, financing, marketing and venture launch preparation – and is applicable to anyone looking to improve their ability to start, grow and succeed in business.

Participants have the option to work with a virtual business mentor throughout the course, and Brainshark’s online, on-demand format enables course participants to review and revisit information at any time.

See an overview of the 10-Step Course and buy it at the Knowledge Institute website.
