Who is Selfmade for?

What if I don't know what my business idea is just yet?
Then we think you are the PERFECT candidate for this. Part of our first couple of weeks together will be to hone in on the types of products or services that inspire you and that also could make for a nice business. We’ll tackle this together.

What if I already own a business?
First off, congratulations! We know it takes hard work to get to that point. We also know that it’s easy to get stuck once you get started. We’ll be pairing folks off based on how far along they are with their businesses so that we can tailor assignments and classes for all different levels of entrepreneurs. We hope you can use this course to get un-stuck and start growing again.

Is this course for a certain age range?
Yes, but that age range is a broad one. In our past courses, we’ve had students as young as 20 and as old as 70. Coincidentally, our coaches and guest teachers also range from their 20s to their 60s. So do with that what you will. We believe that you are never too old or too young to become an entrepreneur.

What about non-profit?
We’ve had students who run non-profits in our past courses and have found them to be just as enlightening as our for-profit student businesses. Many of the same tools apply, from marketing and social media to fundraising and mastering the sales pitch.

Is this for companies that are bootstrapped or venture-backed?
Both! We want you to dream big, but that dream is YOUR dream. Tbh, there are pros and cons of both routes. Let’s chat about them and then you can figure out which path is the right one for you. All companies are eligible for grant money in our pitch competition.
