Do you own or plan to start an engineering business?

More importantly, do you know how?

We all learned engineering fundamentals in college, but received very little, if any, education on how to operate a successful business. This course is unbiased, practical advice on some of the major elements of starting and running such a business. This online engineering business seminar will explain the basics of starting and running an engineering business from the perspective of a former owner of a local INC 500 company.
