One of our most exciting and innovative programs at Streams of Hope is the SpringGR Entrepreneurial training – and now, we are inviting you to apply for the spring 2018 semester! We partner with SpringGR to bring their business training experience to local entrepreneurs in our community.
What is it?
SpringGR is a 12-week training course for budding entrepreneurs. If you have an idea for a business and you need some help getting it off of the ground, this class is for you.
Some of the topics include (learn more here):
- Developing your business idea
- Identifying customers
- Pricing and business finances
- Having customer conversations
- Pitching your business idea
- Refining your brand and marketing ideas
What is it not?
This class is not for the faint of heart – it takes guts! The SpringGR training is intense. It’s designed to teach you and encourage you as much as possible in just a few month’s time. But at the Streams of Hope campus, we are here to help you every step of the way. You can do this!

How does it work?
This course is hosted at the Streams of Hope campus (one of several possible locations) and involves a series of lectures and hands-on learning experiences from professional business experts. For 12 weeks, entrepreneurs go through rigorous training to flesh out their business idea and lay a solid foundation for their new venture. After graduation, SpringGR does a wonderful job at continuing to support entrepreneurs by providing networking and mentoring for graduates.
We want you to succeed. We want to see you thrive! We believe in your business idea, and we want to bring it to our neighborhood. The empowerment of entrepreneurs is one of the key ingredients in creating a healthy Townline neighborhood, which is why we are so excited to introduce more and more participants to this great program.
Sign me up!
