Kauffman FastTrac® TechVenture™

For several years Emory has participated in bringing the Kauffman FastTrac® TechVenture™ program to Atlanta. The program is offered on a period basis and participation is through an application process.

The course is designed to help science-based entrepreneurs transform their grand ideas into flourishing businesses. During the 6 week program aspiring and current entrepreneurs learn about the nuts and bolts of running a business from other successful entrepreneurs. Participants will explore market research analysis, financial planning, team building, intellectual property, and business management, among other topics. Each topic will be taught by a different startup executive or an experienced entrepreneur.

Much of the course material comes from the Kauffman Foundation, which supports educational programs promoting entrepreneurship across the country. It will include guest speakers, facilitated discussions, and coaching sessions.

Previously the Kauffman course has been offered in collaboration with the University of Georgia’s Small Business Development Center, Atlanta’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and (Small Business Administration).
