 The students participated in various lecture sessions, led by experts in business start-up and business management.  The students also participated in several field trips to businesses in the Austin and Waco area.  

​The participants have designed their websites and prepared the initial framework for their business plans. They prepared presentations, describing their business concepts, for use in presenting to funding agencies and lenders.  We are so proud of our graduates.
