Entrepreneurship

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Many small businesses are started by entrepreneurs who create a business to meet a need in the marketplace. Ivy Tech Community College's Entrepreneurship program prepares individuals to create new ventures, write and implement a business plan, and grow a small business. Students will study topics that will help them start a small business and take it to the next level.
