Thursdays: April 26th – May 24th, 2018 from 9:30am– 12:30pm
This 5-week cohort experience will guide existing artists and makers through a comprehensive assessment of their experience producing and selling to date, while also addressing the opportunities and challenges currently at hand. It is designed to offer the accountability and support necessary to both clarify goals for the future and generate action. Content areas include visioning, financial review, cost and benefit analyses, refinement of marketing plans and methods, as well as focus sessions to generate critical feedback and new ideas. Annie Milroy Price, of Mountain BizWorks and Birds Eye, will be facilitating this course and will be integrating relevant information from the Craft Your Commerce workshop series into the program. Additional background on the Alpine course is available here. If you aren’t yet in business, we recommend you consider the Foundations business planning course.
