Entrepreneur incubator to connect students and industry experts
Many pundits have offered various explanations for the ongoing “big pullout” of 2021, but one thing many of them agree on is that it is likely to continue for some time. Seeing an opportunity to woo potential unemployed clients looking to start new businesses, ENTRE Institute, a Las Vegas-based web-based platform for marketing and business education, announced a “virtual incubator” to train new new entrepreneurs with educational materials, live instructions and other online resources.
According to a press release this week, ENTRE Unlimited is an extension of the company’s platform that will provide access to hundreds of course hours across four “tracks” based on key business models including activities agency, knowledge activities, referral activities and sales professionals. . It also includes unlimited weekly live instruction from industry experts, an entrepreneurial assessment tool to create custom courses, a skill-based mastery ranking system to determine a student’s knowledge, and a class of rotating master taught by guest instructors, among others.
The press release says the launch of ENTRE Unlimited comes after two years of consultation with subject matter experts, curriculum developers and educational technology specialists.
“Our research has shown time and time again that students need a curriculum that includes more than a few videos and the occasional webinar,” ENTRE founder Jeff Lerner said in a public statement. “So the question really was, how do you combine a traditional college experience with the freedom and speed of modern, results-driven education? And how do you do it at scale at a price that puts it within the reach of an entrepreneur. beginner ?” Lerner said BETWEEN fits well as a replacement or complement to traditional college education, which he says exists outside of the best opportunities in today’s digital economy. BETWEEN, he said, is filling those gaps, and early results from the company’s courses include doubling student retention and more than quadrupling graduation rates. ENTRE’s press release says more than 7,000 new students, many of them working professionals, use the platform each month.
