ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – An Albuquerque organization that educates entrepreneurs on growing their businesses is sending its curriculum to North Carolina and Portugal.
The Albuquerque Journal reports Creative Startups is recruiting for the first North Carolina cohort.
The program is slated to debut internationally in Portugal.
Creative Startups offers a six-week course mostly online for business owners nationwide. The program culminates in-person with participants pitching businesses or ideas to investors and entrepreneurs.
Co-founder Alice Loy said Creative Startups is licensing all the intellectual material while each site in North Carolina and Portugal provides staff.
A $190,000 Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation grant helped set the program up for use in more locations.
The next Albuquerque program will be in September.
