The Speakeasy

From the Ground Up

The From the Ground Up program focuses on empowering and educating individuals at the earliest stage of business development. The comprehensive, four-hour workshops and monthly office hours are designed to equip aspiring entrepreneurs and new business owners by providing essential knowledge in the realms of legal, human resources, accounting, and banking. The program is intentionally designed to be industry agnostic and serve as a springboard for new businesses regardless of scalability/growth potential making it accessible to both small, medium, and high growth companies. While the workshop takes a deep dive into each topic area, each service provider is also available on a month-basis within The Speakeasy to answer to those just-in-time questions! 

From the Ground Up provides participants with a solid understanding of the fundamental principles and best practices crucial for the successful establishment and management of a business in any industry.
