Success Through Entrepreneurship Program (STEP)
Upcoming Program: June 7-18, 2023

Auburn University’s Outreach Global Office (OGO) in collaboration with (AU) Harbert College of Business (HCOB) offer a noncredit training program called: Success Through Entrepreneurship Program (STEP). STEP targets youth, female microentrepreneurs, and STEM students across the globe. The twelve day entrepreneurial training program aims to help women, youths and students learn the entrepreneurial skills needed to build a viable and sustainable business venture.

Participants in the program will learn basic business skills in finance, marketing, communication, and management. Additionally, participants will be trained in the lean startup methodology to learn how to develop effective value propositions and scalable business models and will engage in problem solving and idea generation activities. This program leverages the expertise of AU working with microentrepreneurs from historically underserved communities in the US and providing entrepreneurial skills training to low-income youths in the USA to work with microentrepreneurs and youths in developing countries. Although poverty in developing countries remains high, there is evidence that increased entrepreneurial activity can play a major role in economic advancement.

Fee: $250 per person, fee includes non-degree certificate.

Group rate: $200. Program available both online and in person.
