Q. How Can Your New Business Survive?

A. GIE - The Global Institute for Entrepreneurship


Over 50% OF BUSINESSES FAIL in the first 5 YEARS!
That’s why GIE at West Los Angeles College is focused on entrepreneurship from the perspective of SURVIVAL.  This essential and innovative college extension program will teach you how to navigate around and survive the potential perils that sink so many start-ups. The goal is to create entrepreneurs who can survive – and potentially thrive – in their business ventures.

Present Your Concept to Investors for Potential Funding during the Final Week

  • GIE lecturers and panelists will include executives from Fortune 100 companies, successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, business financiers, underwriters, attorneys, M&A experts, small business administration, government contract managers, economic development representatives from the Los Angeles Mayor’s office, and grant writers.
  • Ten months long, conveniently offered just one Thursday night and Saturday day per month.
  • Lecturers and panelists will introduce each month’s topic on Thursday and share their experiences and knowledge. Delve hands-on into the topic, through discussion, projects, presentations and more on Saturday.
