Local entrepreneurs graduate from ASU Startup School at The InnovationHub @ GoodyearAZ
The most recent ASU Startup School workshop series wrapped up with some amazing local entrepreneurs who walked away with new ideas and knowledge of making their business dreams a reality.
The InnovationHub @ GoodyearAZ is a partnership between the city of Goodyear, ASU Entrepreneurship & Innovation Group, and the Maricopa County Library District. This distinguished trio has created an inspiring space where inventors, problem solvers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses can collaborate, network, expand their ideas and receive one-on-one mentoring.
ASU Startup School is a series of five workshops designed to assist entrepreneurs in learning what they need to develop a successful business venture including:
- Business Modeling
- Product & Customer Development
- Marketing Strategies
- Legal Formation
- Intellectual Property
Here is what the recent graduates had to say:
“Great collaboration – ASU, Goodyear Economic Development, and the Public Library – I am so glad I stumbled across The InnovationHub!
I didn’t want it to end!”
“It opened my mind to a customer perspective and my value.”
“A lot of useful info – most of which I had no idea about!”
“I really liked how this program covered the basic steps to start a business. Offer a Phase 2, please!”
The InnovationHub @ GoodyearAZ has held two sessions of ASU Startup School in 2017, and will be offering another workshop series beginning in the fall. For more information, log on to develop.goodyearaz.com or contact Darah.firstname.lastname@example.org.
