Team Jefferson provides business skills classes, business planning courses, and LEAN thinking workshops for entrepreneurs and startups.
Our business planning class is offered in a very practical, non-academic way in a relaxed, supportive environment. All the presenters have local real-life business experience--they've been there, done that, and experienced both the gratifications and frustrations of being a business owner.
Our Lean Thinking workshop for entrepreneurs and start-ups is what you need to learn how efficiently operate small business. This workshop will focus on determining if there is a market for your idea, getting a product to market quicker, and reducing risk with more effective processes.
bIQ stands for business Intelligent Quotient, and Team Jefferson wants to help you raise yours. We have recruited the region's best and brightest to teach stand-alone 90 to 120 minute classes on topics curated to help you to run your business successfully.
