WWU offers extended education class on creating startups

Western Washington University’s College of Business and Economics will offer an entrepreneurship methods evening course this spring. The class is open to the general public.

“Lean Startup & Entrepreneurship Methods” will give participants hands-on experience in creating a startup business. Participants will learn how to use a business model, to brainstorm each part of a company and customer development, and to get out of the classroom to see if the startup product is viable.

The three-credit course is taught by Robin Halliday, partner at Bellingham Innovation Group and co-chair of the Technology Alliance Group for Northwest Washington, and Joseph Jarzembowski, principal at Arch Consulting Northwest.

Classes will be held Tuesday evenings with two Thursday evening workshops. They start on Tuesday, April 2.

An information sessions will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, in Room 314 of WWU’s Communications Facility, and at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, in the Port of Bellingham’s Technology Development Center at 1000 F St.
