Demand for the classes is very high, so don’t waste any time signing up for a class. Acceptance is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. You are successfully registered only when you receive the acceptance email from Build Institute and pay your non-refundable $50 deposit.

Course Description and Schedule

The Build Basics course is an eight week business and project planning course. It’s designed to be compatible with any type of business at any stage – idea, startup, or established.

With Build Basics, students will learn the essentials of starting a business, including licensing, market research, cash flow, and financial literacy. Students will exit the class with a completed business plan, a group of fellow entrepreneurs in Detroit, and the knowledge to transform their business idea into reality.
